PRESENT: SCUDDER, P.J., SMITH, CENTRA, CARNI, AND WHALEN, JJ.
It is hereby ORDERED that said appeal is unanimously dismissed without costs.
Memorandum: This Court issued an order on a prior appeal in this case (Bond v Turner, 78 A.D.3d 1490, rearg denied 81 A.D.3d 1387), and Thomas A. Turner and Michelle M. Turner (defendants) now appeal from the ensuing judgment issued by Supreme Court. Defendants simultaneously moved in the Court of Appeals for leave to appeal from the judgment, which would bring up for review our nonfinal order on the prior appeal, and the Court of Appeals dismissed the motion for leave to appeal "upon the ground that simultaneous appeals do not lie to both the Appellate Division and the Court of Appeals" (20 N.Y.3d 904, 904). The Court of Appeals thereafter denied defendants' application for leave to reargue that motion (20 N.Y.3d 1021). Defendants fail to raise any challenge to the judgment, however, and contend only that this Court erred with respect to our order in the prior appeal. Thus, defendants are in effect again moving for leave to reargue with respect to the prior order by which they were aggrieved (see Bond, 78 A.D.3d 1490, rearg denied 81 A.D.3d 1387), inasmuch as they are not further aggrieved by the judgment (see generally Utility Servs. Contr., Inc. v Monroe County Water Auth., 90 A.D.3d 1661, 1663, lv denied 19 N.Y.3d 803). We therefore dismiss defendants' appeal from the judgment (see CPLR 5511).
