WILLIAM F. MASTRO, J.P., JOHN M. LEVENTHAL, CHERYL E. CHAMBERS & SHERI S. ROMAN, JJ.
ORDERED that the final order is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.
The appellant's specific contention regarding service of the order to show cause and petition was not raised before the Supreme Court and is raised for the first time on appeal. The appellant appeared in court and litigated the matter on the merits, thus waiving any challenge to service (see Matter of Gregory v Board of Elections of City of N.Y., 93 AD2d 894, affd 59 NY2d 668; Matter of Banks v Larkin, 39 AD2d 951).
MASTRO, J.P., LEVENTHAL, CHAMBERS and ROMAN, JJ., concur.
