Marianne Rosner, respondent, v. Andrew Rosner, appellant.

2009-00350 (Index No. 201865/06)

Decided: May 25, 2010

REINALDO E. RIVERA, J.P. ANITA R. FLORIO DANIEL D. ANGIOLILLO PLUMMER E. LOTT, JJ. Andrew Rosner, Garden City, N.Y., appellant pro se. Law Offices of Thomas F. Liotti, LLC, Garden City, N.Y. (Michael P. Hilferty and Lucia Maria Ciaravino of counsel), for respondent.

Argued-April 22, 2010


In an action for a divorce and ancillary relief, the defendant appeals from an order of the Supreme Court, Nassau County (Brown, J.), dated December 18, 2008, which denied his motion to vacate an order of the same court dated April 24, 2008, appointing Cary David Kessler, Esq., as referee, to supervise discovery.

ORDERED that the order is affirmed, with costs.

The Supreme Court properly denied the defendant's motion to vacate an order appointing Cary David Kessler, a private attorney, to serve as referee to supervise discovery pursuant to CPLR 3104(b).  The parties consented to Kessler's appointment on the record (see CPLR 3104[b];  cf.  Csanko v. County of Westchester, 273 A.D.2d 434;  Ploski v. Riverwood Owners Corp., 255 A.D.2d 24, 28).

The defendant's remaining contention is not properly before this Court.
