31 A.D.2d 638 (1968)

Jean A. Kull et al., Appellants, v. City of New York, Respondent

Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Second Department.

December 9, 1968

Order reversed, on the law, without costs, and motion denied, without costs.

The findings of fact below are affirmed. We have held that CPLR 3216, as amended (L. 1967, ch. 770, eff. Sept. 1, 1967), shall be applied to all appeals reaching us after that effective date. Since a note of issue was served and filed prior to the service of the notice of motion, no dismissal could be had under CPLR 3216. Insofar as this holding is inconsistent with Cohn v. Borchard Affiliations (30 A.D.2d 74), we choose not to follow that case. It is our determination that the provisions of CPLR 3216 are constitutional (N. Y. Const., art. VI, § 30; Johnson v. Parrow, 56 Misc.2d 863).
