THE PEOPLE, ETC., res, v. RAFAEL QUINONES, ap — Motion by the appellant pro se, in effect, to restore to active status an appeal from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Kings County, rendered February 29, 2008, which was deemed abandoned pursuant to 22 NYCRR 670.8(f), for leave to prosecute the appeal as a poor person, and for the assignment of counsel. By order to show cause dated May 10, 2012, the appellant was directed to show cause before this Court why an order should or should not be made and entered dismissing the appeal on the ground that the notice of appeal was untimely, and the appellant's motion was held in abeyance in the interim.

Now, upon the order to show cause and the papers filed in response thereto, and upon the papers filed in support of the appellant's motion and the papers filed in opposition thereto, it is

ORDERED that the motion to dismiss the appeal is granted and the appeal is dismissed (see CPL 460.10[1][a], 460.30); and it is further,

ORDERED that the appellant's motion is denied as academic.
