IN RE: Rey OLSEN, Petitioner-Appellant, v. UNITED STATES TRUST COMPANY OF NEW YORK, et al., Respondents-Respondents, Michael Kennedy Karlson, et al., Respondents.

Decided: January 23, 2007

ANDRIAS, J.P., SULLIVAN, WILLIAMS, GONZALEZ, MALONE, JJ. Rey Olsen, appellant pro se. Carter, Ledyard & Milburn LLP, New York (Aaron R. Cahn of counsel), for United States Trust Company of New York and Aaron Cahn, respondents.

Order, Supreme Court, New York County (Rolando T. Acosta, J.), entered March 14, 2006, which denied the petition to vacate a judgment in a related action, unanimously affirmed, with costs.

 All the arguments before us could have been raised in the turnover proceeding in which petitioner unsuccessfully sought to intervene.   Having abandoned his appeal from denial of leave to intervene there, he cannot properly raise those arguments here (Munn v. New York City Hous. Auth., 202 A.D.2d 210, 211, 608 N.Y.S.2d 221 [1994] ).   Further, the instant proceeding was not timely commenced, having not been brought “[p]rior to the application of property or debt by a sheriff or receiver to the satisfaction of a judgment” (see CPLR 5239).   Were we to reach petitioner's arguments, we would reject them.
