MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

It is hereby ORDERED that said appeal is unanimously dismissed without costs.

Memorandum:  Plaintiff appeals from an order that, inter alia, dismissed its causes of action for breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing and for rescission of a contract.  “The right to appeal from an intermediate order terminates with the entry of a final judgment” (Matter of Scott v. Manilla, 203 A.D.2d 972, 973;  see Matter of Aho, 39 N.Y.2d 241, 248;  see generally CPLR 5501[a][1] ).  Inasmuch as a final judgment in this action was entered on February 29, 2016, plaintiff's appeal from the intermediate order, which was entered on January 25, 2016, must be dismissed.
