Levine Sullivan Koch & Schulz, LLP, New York (Katherine M. Bolger of counsel), for appellant.

Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., District Attorney, New York (Diane N. Princ of counsel), for respondent.

Baker & Hostetler, LLP, Washington, D.C., (Mark I. Bailen of counsel), for amici curiae.

Upon remittitur from the Court of Appeals (_NY3d_, 2018 NY Slip Op 04684 [2018], appeal from an order, Supreme Court, New York County (Bonnie Wittner, J.), entered on or about August 4, 2016, which denied nonparty appellant's motions to quash subpoenas requiring her testimony and the production of notes relating to her jailhouse interview of the defendant in the underlying criminal proceeding, unanimously dismissed, without costs, as taken from a nonappealable order.

"[N]o appeal lies from an order arising out of a criminal proceeding absent specific statutory authorization" (Matter of People v Juarez , _NY3d_, 2018 NY Slip Op 04684 [2018]), quoting People v Santos , 64 NY2d 702, 704 [1984]). As pertinent to the issue in this case, "an order determining a motion to quash a subpoena . . . issued in the course of prosecution of a criminal action, arises out of a criminal proceeding for which no direct appellate review is authorized" (id. ; see CPL art 450).

THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.

ENTERED: SEPTEMBER 6, 2018
