IN RE: Zobaida NOOR, Respondent, v. Noor Mohamed NOOR, Appellant.

Decided: February 24, 2005

Before:  CARDONA, P.J., CREW III, CARPINELLO, MUGGLIN and KANE, JJ. Theresa M. Suozzi, Saratoga Springs, for appellant. Cade & Saunders P.C., Albany (Karen R. Crandall of counsel), for respondent. Patricia L.R. Rodriguez, Law Guardian, Schenectady.

Appeal from an order of the Family Court of Schenectady County (Powers, J.), entered February 25, 2002, which granted petitioner's application, in a proceeding pursuant to Family Ct. Act article 8, for an order of protection.

On January 4, 2002, Family Court entered a temporary order of protection.   Thereafter, Family Court entered an amended temporary order of protection.   Following a plenary hearing, Family Court issued an order of protection.   The orders, respectively, expired July 4, 2002, July 19, 2002, and February 25, 2003.   As no further relief has been sought (see Matter of Fisk v. Fisk, 274 A.D.2d 691, 693, 710 N.Y.S.2d 473 [2000];  Matter of Exum v. Sims, 254 A.D.2d 178, 679 N.Y.S.2d 300 [1998];  Matter of Betancourt v. Boughton, 204 A.D.2d 804, 810, 611 N.Y.S.2d 941 [1994] ), this appellate challenge to the issuance of the orders of protection is moot as any determination herein will not directly affect the rights of the parties (see Matter of Hearst Corp. v. Clyne, 50 N.Y.2d 707, 714, 431 N.Y.S.2d 400, 409 N.E.2d 876 [1980] ).

ORDERED that the appeal is dismissed, as moot, without costs.

MUGGLIN, J.

CARDONA, P.J., CREW III, CARPINELLO and KANE, JJ., concur.
