On August 28, 1987, the plaintiff Elaine Jacondino was injured when her automobile collided with a vehicle driven by the defendant Anthony Lovis and owned by the defendant Deborah Lovis. The injured plaintiff and her husband subsequently commenced the instant action against Anthony and Deborah Lovis, and the defendants moved for summary judgment, contending that Elaine Jacondino had not sustained a "serious injury" as defined by Insurance Law § 5102 (d). In support of the motion, the defendants relied upon an unsworn report prepared by their examining physician which stated that there was no objective evidence that the plaintiff Elaine Jacondino suffered from "continuing injury".

Furthermore, the plaintiffs' motion, although denominated as one for renewal, was based primarily upon evidence which could have been obtained at the time of the original motion, and the plaintiffs offered no excuse for their failure to initially present this evidence in opposition to the defendants' motion for summary judgment (see, Matter of Barnes v State of New York, 159 A.D.2d 753; Huttner v McDaid, 151 A.D.2d 547; Matter of Kadish v Colombo, 121 A.D.2d 722; McRory v Craft Architectural Metals Corp., 112 A.D.2d 358). Therefore, the motion was in actuality one for reargument, and since no appeal lies from the denial of a motion for reargument, the appeal from the order dated October 23, 1990, is dismissed (see, Chiarella v Quitoni, 178 A.D.2d 502; Huttner v McDaid, supra).
