IN RE: Craig Zeman, appellant, v Shana L. Knibbs, respondent.

2010–04143 (Docket No. V–180–09)

Decided: July 12, 2011

WILLIAM F. MASTRO, J.P. CHERYL E. CHAMBERS LEONARD B. AUSTIN JEFFREY A. COHEN, JJ. Del Atwell, East Hampton, N.Y., for appellant. Richard N. Lentino, Middletown, N.Y., for respondent.

Submitted—June 21, 2011


In a visitation proceeding pursuant to Family Court Act article 6, the father appeals from an order of disposition of the Supreme Court, Orange County (IDV Part) (Bivona, J.), entered March 25, 2010, which, after a hearing, dismissed his petition, in effect, to enforce a prior order of visitation.

ORDERED that the order of disposition is affirmed, without costs or disbursements.

Contrary to the father's contention, there is no evidence that the Supreme Court was biased against him and deprived him of a fair hearing (see Matter of Richardson v. Richardson, 80 AD3d 32, 44;  Matter of Jeannie B. v. Roger D., 33 AD3d 994).   Moreover, the record supports the Supreme Court's determination that the mother did not violate the prior order of visitation (see Matter of Sinnott–Turner v. Kolba, 60 AD3d 774;  Matter of Perez v. Sepulveda, 54 AD3d 347).
