ROBERT A. SPOLZINO, J.P., FRED T. SANTUCCI, ANITA R. FLORIO & RUTH C. BALKIN, JJ.
ORDERED that the order is affirmed insofar as appealed from, with costs.
The Supreme Court properly exercised its discretion in determining that the defendants did not demonstrate unusual or unanticipated circumstances warranting the discovery requested through their motion (see 22 NYCRR 202.21[d]; Gomez v New York City Tr. Auth., 19 AD3d 366, 366-367; cf. Scanga v Family Practice Assoc. of Rockland, P.C., 41 AD3d 576, 576-577).
The defendants' remaining contentions are without merit.
SPOLZINO, J.P., SANTUCCI, FLORIO and BALKIN, JJ., concur.
