77 A.D.3d 622

In an action to recover damages for medical malpractice, etc., the plaintiff appeals from (1) an order of the Supreme Court, Suffolk County (Spinner, J.), dated August 10, 2009, which granted those branches of the motion of the defendants Jed Jacob Weinberg, West Carver Medical Associates, P.C., Paul K. Brodsky, and Alan Schuller, and the separate motion of the defendants Hollace Jackson and Hollace Jackson M.D., F.A.C.O.G., P.C., which were for summary judgment dismissing the complaint insofar as asserted against each of them, (2) a judgment of the same court entered September 23, 2009, which is in favor of the defendants Hollace Jackson, and Hollace Jackson, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., P.C., and against them, dismissing the complaint insofar as asserted against those defendants, and (3) a judgment of the same court entered October 28, 2009, which is in favor of the defendants Jed Jacob Weinberg, West Carver Medical Associates, P.C., Paul K. Brodsky, and Alan Schuller and against them, dismissing the complaint insofar as asserted against those defendants.

909 N.Y.S.2d 478

ORDERED that the appeal from the order is dismissed; and it is further,

ORDERED that the judgments are affirmed; and it is further,

ORDERED that one bill of costs is awarded to the respondents appearing separately and filing separate briefs.

The appeal from the intermediate order must be dismissed because the right of direct appeal therefrom terminated with the entry of the judgments in the action ( see Matter of Aho, 39 N.Y.2d 241, 248, 383 N.Y.S.2d 285, 347 N.E.2d 647). The issues raised on the appeal from the order are brought up for review and have been considered on the appeals from the judgments ( see CPLR 5501[a] [1] ).
