DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the appeal and cross appeal are dismissed, without costs or disbursements.
No appeal lies as of right from an order entered sua sponte (see CPLR 5701[a]), and neither the plaintiffs nor the defendants sought leave to appeal from the order entered November 23, 2007 (see CPLR 5701[c]). Under the circumstances of this case, we decline to grant leave to appeal (see Rubeo v National Grange Mut. Ins. Co., 93 NY2d 750, 757; Matter of City of New York, S. Jamaica I Urban Renewal Area, 41 AD3d 595; Russo v Russo, 275 AD2d 406; Matter of Jennie EE., 210 AD2d 744, 745).
SKELOS, J.P., DILLON, COVELLO and LEVENTHAL, JJ., concur.
