DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with costs.
The plaintiff's contentions were previously raised and decided against him on prior appeals in this matter (see Stone v Stone, 39 AD3d 534; Stone v Stone, 19 AD3d 404; Stone v Stone, 229 AD2d 388). Therefore, reconsideration of these issues is barred by the doctrine of the law of the case (see People v Evans, 94 NY2d 499, 502; Martin v City of Cohoes, 37 NY2d 162, 165; Marcus Dairy, Inc. v Jacene Realty Corp., 27 AD3d 427; Purpura v Purpura, 21 AD3d 542).
We decline the defendant's request to impose sanctions against the plaintiff (see 22 NYCRR 130-1.1[a]).
RIVERA, J.P., MILLER, BALKIN and AUSTIN, JJ., concur.
