http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=46625 Judge Straniere SMALL-CLAIMANT plaintiff sought damages from defendant moving company for its alleged breach of the moving contract. The court awarded her $50. Despite finding that plaintiff had not proven a material breach of the contract, the court ruled that she established defendant mover’s violation of General Business Law �349 because it failed to unload her household goods and held them “hostage.” The court also found that defendant mover made no attempt to comply with transportation department regulations at 17 New York Codes, Rules and Regulations �814.7, which requires delivery of beds, kitchen tables and chairs and permits a carrier to retain only such goods as are necessary to cover the amount of charges to be paid. The court additionally found that the moving company committed a deceptive practice by failing to include certain required information in the contract, including its name, address and telephone number, as well as its license number from the Department of Transportation.
