226 A.D.2d 278 (1996)

641 N.Y.S.2d 283

Richard J. Korn, Appellant, v. Gary Princz et al., Respondents. (And Another Action.)

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

April 25, 1996

The IAS Court properly characterized the allegations underlying the first cause of action as one for defamation and properly dismissed it as time-barred under the applicable one-year Statute of Limitations (CPLR 215 [3]). The complaint did not state a cause of action for tortious interference with prospective business relations, as plaintiff now asserts (see, WFB Telecommunications v NYNEX Corp., 188 A.D.2d 257, lv denied 81 N.Y.2d 709), since there is no allegation that plaintiff was actually and wrongfully prevented from entering into or continuing in a specific business relationship (McGill v Parker, 179 A.D.2d 98, 105) as a result of defendants' conduct (Mandelblatt v Devon Stores, 132 A.D.2d 162, 169).
