DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.
The Court of Claims did not improvidently exercise its discretion in denying the nonparty-appellant's motion for leave to withdraw as counsel for the claimants (see George v George, 217 AD2d 913, 913; Haskell v Haskell, 185 AD2d 333, 333).
The nonparty-appellant's remaining contentions either are improperly raised for the first time on appeal, or are without merit.
FISHER, J.P., FLORIO, COVELLO and DICKERSON, JJ., concur.
