Notice of Petition and Petition w/exhibits
Petitioner/Judgment Creditor’s application pursuant to CPLR $5225(b) for a judgment directing
Respondent, CSF Bank, as garnishee to pay out monies deposited on account with the bank in partial
satisfaction of the judgment entered in favor of Petitioner and against the judgment debtor, is granted.
Pursuant to Banking Law $675(a) a bank account opened in the name of a depositor and another
person and in the form to be paid to either or the survivor is recognized as a joint bank account wherein the
individuals named on the account are joint tenants to the property and the bank is authorized to pay out the
proceeds of said account to either of the persons named.
Two rebuttable presumptions flow from the
establishment of such accounts; one, each tenant is said to be possessed of the whole account; and two, each
tenant is entitled to half the account. Banking Law
5675,Mendel v. Chervanyou, 147 Misc.2d 1056 (New
York City Civil Ct., Kings County, 1990). The judgment creditor bears the burden of proof to overcome the
presumption that each tenant is entitled to one half of the account.

overcome the presumption. Chewanlvou, sum-a. Petitioner has not provided the Court with any evidence
indicating that the second person named on the account is not entitled to one half of the money in the account
and the presumption survives.
