[89 A.D.3d 670] In an action, inter alia, to set aside a deed, the plaintiff appeals from (1) an order of the Supreme Court, Kings County (Schneier, J.), dated May 21, 2010, which granted the motion of the defendant Olabanji Awosika pursuant to CPLR 3216 to dismiss the complaint insofar as asserted against that defendant for failure to prosecute and denied his cross motion to restore the action to the pre-note of issue calendar, and (2) an order of the same court dated October 1, 2010, which granted the separate motion of the defendant Olabanji Awosika to cancel two notices of pendency filed in connection with the subject real property and denied his separate cross motion, inter alia, for leave to renew his opposition to the motion of the defendant Olabanji Awosika pursuant to CPLR 3216 to dismiss the complaint insofar as asserted against that defendant for failure to prosecute.

ORDERED that the order dated May 21, 2010, is affirmed; and it is further,

Naghavi, 82 A.D.3d 960, 919 N.Y.S.2d 79; LaSalle Bank N.A. v. Henderson, 69 A.D.3d 679, 891 N.Y.S.2d 655; Wen Zong Yu v. Hua Fan, 65 A.D.3d 1335, 885 N.Y.S.2d 605). That record “must contain all of the relevant papers that were before the Supreme Court” [89 A.D.3d 671] ( LaSalle Bank N.A. v. Henderson, 69 A.D.3d at 680, 891 N.Y.S.2d 655 [internal quotation marks omitted]; see CPLR 5526; Wen Zong Yu v. Hua Fan, 65 A.D.3d at 1335, 885 N.Y.S.2d 605). Here, although the plaintiff appealed from the order dated October 1, 2010, granting the motion of the defendant Olabanji Awosika to cancel two notices of pendency filed in connection with certain...
