Appeal from order, Supreme Court, New York County (Richard B.

After the instant appeal was perfected, the Australian court granted plaintiff's motion to stay all proceedings in the Australian action pending resolution of the action in Supreme Court. Plaintiff thus having obtained the injunctive relief it requested, a determination of this appeal would not affect the rights of the parties (see Matter of Johnson v Pataki, 91 NY2d 214, 222 ). We note that none of the exceptions to the mootness doctrine exist here (see Matter of Hearst Corp v Clyne, 50 NY2d 707, 714-715 ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
