The court properly denied plaintiff's motion to amend and supplement his bill of particulars to incorporate a new theory of liability after the filing of the note of issue and absent a reasonable excuse for the delay in moving (Lupo v Pro Foods, LLC, 68 AD3d 607, 608 ). In light of the foregoing, the court properly precluded plaintiff's expert from testifying as to the new theory.
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
