DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
The defendant has failed to demonstrate that he possesses the requisite standing (cf. Powers v Ohio, 499 US 400, 410-415) to assert that the public's First Amendment right to attend his trial was violated as a result of the procedures employed by the trial court in conducting a Hinton hearing in this case (see People v Hinton, 31 NY2d 71, cert denied 410 US 911).
MASTRO, J.P., COVELLO, ENG and LEVENTHAL, JJ., concur.
