This memorandum is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the New York Reports.
On review of submissions pursuant to section 500.11 of the Rules (22 NYCRR 500.11), order affirmed, with costs, and the certified question answered in the affirmative. We agree with the Appellate Division that Surrogate's Court did not abuse its discretion by setting a December 2009 deadline for the completion of discovery and limiting the identity and number of individuals to be deposed. Chief Judge Lippman and Judges Ciparick, Graffeo, Read, Smith, Pigott and Jones concur.
