Plaintiff commenced quiet title action to establish ownership of three parcels. Plaintiff’s claim was not based on adverse possession. At his deposition plaintiff testified he had no documents to establish ownership of the parcels. Defendant then sought to amend her answer to assert Statute of Frauds as an affirmative defense. The Lower Court denied leave to amend. The Appellate Court reversed and granted leave to amend.  The Second Department reasoned that discovery was still incomplete, there was no prejudice to plaintiff, and leave to amend shall be freely granted.
