Arthur M. Schack, J.

In this mortgage foreclosure action, plaintiff’s motion for judgment of foreclosure and sale for the premises located at 1917 Bergen Street, Brooklyn, New York (Block 1446, Lot 55, County of Kings) is denied with prejudice. The complaint is dismissed. The notice of pendency filed against the above-named real property is cancelled. Plaintiff, WELLS FARGO BANK, N.A. d/b/a AMERICAS SERVICING COMPANY (WELLS FARGO), lacks standing to continue this action because the instant mortgage was satisfied on May 20, 2009. Plaintiff’s counsel never notified the Court that the mortgage had been satisfied and failed to discontinue the instant action with prejudice. I discovered that the mortgage had been satisfied by personally searching the Automated City Register Information System (ACRIS) website of the Office of the City Register, New York City Department of Finance. Plaintiff’s counsel, Peter G. Zavatsky, Esq., and his firm, Zavatsky, Mendelsohn & Levy, LLP, will be given an opportunity to be heard as to why this Court should not sanction them for making a “frivolous motion,” pursuant to 22 NYCRR §130-1.1.
