This opinion is uncorrected and subject to revision before publication in the Official Reports.
Decided on March 14, 2013 Andrias, J.P., Sweeny, Freedman, Feinman, Gische, JJ.
The appeal is dismissed, as no appeal lies from a decision, or an appealed paper directing the settlement of a judgment (see CPLR 5512[a]; Gunn v Palmieri, 86 NY2d 830 ; Leser v Penido, 96 AD3d 578 [1st Dept 2012]). Moreover, plaintiff's right to a direct appeal from any order denying a motion to set aside the verdict terminated with the entry of a judgment (see CPLR 5501; Matter of Aho, 39 NY2d 241, 248 ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
