ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with costs.
The claimant's purported claims were dismissed by orders of the Court of Claims dated May 1, 2007, and July 3, 2008, respectively. Despite these orders, the claimant subsequently submitted motion papers to the court, in connection with the dismissed claims, for "an order to hold a preliminary conference." Under such circumstances, the court properly concluded that it was "without jurisdiction to entertain . . . the motion, or to grant the relief requested" (see generally CPLR 304; Matter of Fry v Village of Tarrytown, 89 NY2d 714; Fulton v State of New York, 35 AD3d 977).
DILLON, J.P., SANTUCCI, BALKIN and SGROI, JJ., concur.
