IN THE MATTER OF C. (ANONYMOUS) CHILDREN. ADMINISTRATION FOR CHILDREN'S SERVICES, ET AL., PETITIONERS-RESPONDENTS;
v.
JOHN R. (ANONYMOUS), APPELLANT, ET AL., RESPONDENT.

In related proceedings pursuant to Social Services Law § 384-b to terminate parental rights on the ground of permanent neglect, the father appeals from an order of the Family Court, Kings County (Lim, J.), dated January 11, 2008, which denied his motion to dismiss the proceedings.

WILLIAM F. MASTRO, J.P., JOSEPH COVELLO, THOMAS A. DICKERSON, JOHN M. LEVENTHAL, JJ.

(Docket Nos. B-13345-07, B-13346-07, B-13347-07, B-13348-07)

DECISION & ORDER

ORDERED that on the Court's own motion, the notice of appeal is treated as an application for leave to appeal, and leave to appeal is granted (see CPLR 5701[c]); and it is further,

ORDERED that the order is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.

The father failed to establish that the proceeding was barred by the doctrine of collateral estoppel (see Kaufman v Eli Lilly & Co., 65 NY2d 449, 455-456). Accordingly, the Family Court properly denied his motion to dismiss the proceedings (see CPLR 3211[a][5]).

The father's remaining contentions are without merit. MASTRO, J.P., COVELLO, DICKERSON and LEVENTHAL, JJ., concur.
