Decided September 10, 1991
Appeal from the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court in the First Judicial Department, Beverly Cohen, J.
Michael H. Bernstein and Joan A. Berk for appellant.
Andrew Sapon for third-party defendant-appellant.
Steven J. Seiden for respondent.
On review of submissions pursuant to section 500.4 of the Rules of the Court of Appeals (22 N.Y.CRR 500.4), order affirmed, with costs. Certified question answered in the affirmative. Appellants' principal argument, that Labor Law § 202 preempts the strict liability provisions of Labor Law § 240 (1), is unpreserved for this Court's review, and therefore we do not pass on it. Appellants' remaining argument, that issues of fact exist precluding summary judgment, is without merit.
Concur: Chief Judge WACHTLER and Judges SIMONS, KAYE, ALEXANDER, TITONE, HANCOCK, JR., and BELLACOSA.
