Order, Supreme Court, Bronx County (Stanley Green, J.), entered June 1, 2005, which, inter alia, denied as untimely defendants-appellants' motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint as against them, unanimously affirmed, without costs.

Appellants' summary judgment motion was made almost one year after the deadline for making summary judgment motions set by the court, and appellants failed to show good cause for their delay (see CPLR 3212[a];  Brill v. City of New York, 2 N.Y.3d 648, 781 N.Y.S.2d 261, 814 N.E.2d 431 [2004];  Perini Corp. v. City of New York, 16 A.D.3d 37, 789 N.Y.S.2d 29 [2005];  Colon v. City of New York, 15 A.D.3d 173, 788 N.Y.S.2d 606 [2005] ).
