DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the appeal is dismissed, with costs to the respondent, for failure to perfect the same in accordance with the CPLR and the Rules of this Court (see CPLR 5528[a]; 22 NYCRR 670.10.2[c]).
"An appellant who perfects an appeal by using the appendix method must file an appendix that contains all the relevant portions of the record in order to enable the court to render an informed decision on the merits of the appeal" (Matter of Passalacqua, 31 AD3d 648, 648 [internal quotation marks omitted]; see Cohen v 1651 Carroll Realty Corp., 23 AD3d 603). Here, the appellant failed to provide this Court with an appendix containing a copy of the relevant portions of the trial transcript which is necessary to review the order and judgment appealed from (see Ayers v Ayers, 37 AD3d 629, 630; Matter of Passalacqua, 31 AD3d 648; Cohen v 1651 Carroll Realty Corp., 23 AD3d 603). Accordingly, the appeal must be dismissed.
RIVERA, J. P., DILLON, FLORIO and BALKIN, JJ., concur.
