PRESENT: WESTON, J.P., GOLIA and RIOS, JJ
The order denied a motion by nonparty-appellant Barbara Goncalves for, in effect, leave to reargue and renew her prior motion for post-eviction relief.
ORDERED that the appeal from so much of the order as denied the branch of nonparty-appellant's motion seeking, in effect, leave to reargue her prior motion is dismissed; and it is further,
ORDERED that so much of the order as denied the branch of nonparty-appellant's motion seeking, in effect, leave to renew is affirmed, without costs.
The appeal from so much of the order as denied the branch of nonparty- appellant Barbara Goncalves's motion seeking, in effect, leave to reargue her prior motion for post-eviction relief must be dismissed, as no appeal lies from an order denying a motion for leave to reargue (see Bermudez v City of New York, 66 AD3d 724 ; Malik v Campbell, 289 AD2d 540 ). In support of the branch of her motion seeking leave to renew the prior motion, Goncalves needed to proffer either new facts which were unavailable at the time of the prior motion or a reasonable justification for the failure to have presented such facts on the prior motion (CPLR 2221 [e]; see Deutsche Bank Natl. Trust Co. v Matheson, 77 AD3d 883 ). Goncalves failed to do either. Under these circumstances, the Civil Court did not improvidently exercise its discretion in denying the branch of Goncalves's motion seeking, in effect, leave to renew her prior motion.
Weston, J.P., Golia and Rios, JJ., concur.
