(Docket Nos. N-06320-07, N-06321-07, N-06322-07)
ORDERED that the appeals are dismissed as academic, without costs or disbursements.
The father challenges the order of protection only insofar as it directed him to stay away from and refrain from communicating with the children Karla G. and Walter G. The child Claudia G. challenges the order of protection insofar as it directed the father to stay away from and refrain from communicating with her. The order of protection expired on December 17, 2009, and has not been renewed. As such, the appeals have been rendered academic as any determination on the appeals would not, under the facts of this case, have a direct effect upon the parties (see Matter of Brittany C. [Linda C.], 67 AD3d 788, lv denied 2010 NY Slip Op 63470; Matter of Edelyn S., 62 AD3d 713; Matter of Isaiah S., 63 AD3d 948; Matter of Ajay P., 60 AD3d 681).
FISHER, J.P., SANTUCCI, ENG and CHAMBERS, JJ., concur.
