(Index No. 7582/05)
DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with costs.
Under the circumstances of this case, we agree with the Supreme Court that the third-party complaint failed to state a cause of action to recover damages for legal malpractice (see CPLR 3211[a]).
The appellant's remaining contention is without merit.
SANTUCCI, J.P., ANGIOLILLO, BELEN and CHAMBERS, JJ., concur.
