The Court lacks personal jurisdiction over the defendant due to plaintiffs' failure to serve

process in accordance with Section 311 of the Civil Practice Law and Rules. 5. That this petition is not properly verified as corporate officer/employee of OCEANA BOARD OF MANAGERS LANA KAPLUN can not have firsthand knowledge of the facts, which only COOPER SQUARE REALTY may know. 6. Therefore, this petition must be dismissed. AS AND FOR A SECOND AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE 7. The petition in its entirety, and each cause of action contained therein, fails to state a cause of action. 8.

That if KRICHEVSKY did sign any document and/or entered into any implied contract,

it was based on fraud and misrepresentation. 17. Accordingly, KRICHEVSKY is putting them on notice that he rescinds it. AS AND FOR A FIFTH AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE 18.

That the damages alleged to have been sustained by the plaintiff were sustained while the plaintiff and third-party defendants were involved in an activity which was entered into with full knowledge and consent of the potential hazard thereof, which was explained to them by KRICHEVSKY; and the inherent risk incident to such activity, and that such risk and any damages flowing therefrom were expected and assumed upon entering into and continuing such activity. AS AND FOR A SEVENTH AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE 22. That the plaintiff has failed to use available means to mitigate damages, and therefore waived its rights. 23.
