NEW YORK SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FOURTH DEPARTMENT
November 13, 2009
IN THE MATTER OF FRANCIS S. AND OTHERS, INFANTS.
ONONDAGA COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SERVICES, RESPONDENT;
WENDY H. ET AL., APPELLANTS.
Appeals from an order of the Family Court, Onondaga County (Martha E. Mulroy, J.), entered January 15, 2008 in a proceeding pursuant to Family Court Act article 10. The order placed respondents' children in the custody of petitioner.
Published by New York State Law Reporting Bureau pursuant to Judiciary Law § 431.
As corrected through Wednesday, January 6, 2010
It is hereby ordered that said appeals are unanimously dismissed without costs.
Respondent parents each appeal from an order that, inter alia, placed their children in the custody of petitioner. We dismiss the appeals as moot inasmuch as the order has since expired by its own terms and was superseded by an order entered in July 2008 following a permanency hearing (see Matter of Giovanni K., 62 AD3d 1242, 1243 , lv denied 12 NY3d 715 ). We conclude that the exception to the mootness doctrine does not apply herein (see Matter of Sasha M., 43 AD3d 1401 ).
Present---Scudder, P.J., Centra, Fahey, Green and Gorski, JJ.
