The order granted defendant's motion to vacate a notice of trial and dismiss the complaint pursuant to CPLR 3126 to the extent of vacating the notice of trial and compelling plaintiff to respond to defendant's discovery demands.
ORDERED that the appeal is dismissed as academic.
In this action by a provider to recover assigned first-party no-fault benefits, plaintiff appeals from an order of the Civil Court entered November 17, 2009 which granted defendant's motion to vacate a notice of trial and dismiss the complaint pursuant to CPLR 3126 to the extent of vacating the notice of trial and compelling plaintiff to respond to defendant's discovery demands. Subsequent to the entry of the November 17, 2009 order, the Civil Court entered an order dismissing the complaint. The dismissal of the complaint renders this appeal academic (see Livny v Rotella, 305 AD2d 377 ; Delta Diagnostic Radiology, P.C. v Allstate Ins. Co., 15 Misc 3d 131[A], 2007 NY Slip Op 50673[U] [App Term, 2d & 11th Jud Dists 2007]; Fair Price Med. Supply Corp. v ELRAC Inc., 13 Misc 3d 33 [App Term, 2d & 11th Jud Dists 2006]).
Accordingly, the appeal is dismissed.
