DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the appeal from so much of the order dated May 15, 2008, as denied that branch of the plaintiffs' motion which was for leave to reargue is dismissed, as no appeal lies from an order denying leave to reargue (see Lehman v North Greenwich Landscaping, LLC, 65 AD3d 1293); and it is further,
ORDERED that the order dated May 15, 2008, is affirmed insofar as reviewed; and it is further,
ORDERED that one bill of costs is awarded to the defendants and third-party defendants, appearing separately and filing separate briefs.
The Supreme Court properly denied that branch of the plaintiffs' motion which was for leave to renew. The plaintiffs failed to present a reasonable justification for their failure to present the "new facts" on the original motion (see CPLR 2221[e]). In any event, even considering the allegedly new material, the result would not be different.
MASTRO, J.P., FISHER, ANGIOLILLO and LEVENTHAL, JJ., concur.
