SECTION 1807-A
Proceedings on default and review of judgments
Uniform City Court Act (UCT) CHAPTER 497, ARTICLE 18-A
§ 1807-A. Proceedings on default and review of judgments.

(a) A claimant commencing an action upon a commercial claim under this
article shall be deemed to have waived all right to appeal, except that
either party may appeal on the sole grounds that substantial justice has
not been done between the parties according to the rules and principles
of substantive law.

(b) The clerk shall mail notice of the default judgment by first class
mail, both to the claimant and to the party complained against. Such
notice shall inform the defaulting party, in language promulgated by the
state office of court administration, of such party's legal obligation
to pay; that failure to pay may result in garnishments, repossessions,
seizures and similar actions; and that if there was a reasonable excuse
for the default the defaulting party may apply to have the default
vacated by submitting a written request to the court.

(c) Proceedings on default under this article are to be governed by,
but are not limited to, section five thousand fifteen of the civil
practice law and rules.
