DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with costs.
Inasmuch as we are affirming the Supreme Court's order awarding summary judgment to the defendants in this action (see McElroy v Bernstein,AD3d , Appellate Division Docket No. 2009-04022 [decided herewith]), we find that the Supreme Court properly denied, as academic, the plaintiff's motion for leave to serve an amended complaint adding his wife as a plaintiff asserting derivative claims (see JP Foodservice Distribs., Inc. v PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, 33 AD3d 316, 317; cf. Long Is. Sav. Bank v Savage, 116 AD2d 512, 516, affd 69 NY2d 751).
FISHER, J.P., COVELLO, LOTT and SGROI, JJ., concur.
