The following papers numbered 1-2 were read and considered by the Court on claimant's motion for renewal:

Notice of Motion, Claimant's Supporting Affidavit and Exhibit............................1

Defendant's Affirmation in Opposition and Exhibits..............................................2

Claimant brings this motion to renew regarding this Court's Decision and Order (Word v State of New York, UID No. 2018-054-065 [Ct Cl, Rivera, J., June 20, 2018]) which granted defendant's motion to dismiss Claim No. 131356 on jurisdictional grounds.

By Decision and Order filed-stamped September 10, 2018 (Word v State of New York, UID No. 2018-054-087 [Ct Cl, Rivera, J., August 30, 2018]), this Court denied claimant's motion for reargument noting that a reargument motion is not "a vehicle to permit the unsuccessful party to argue once again the very questions previously decided" (see Foley v Roche, 68 AD2d 558, 567 [1st Dept 1979]).

Similarly, the Court denies claimant's motion for renewal as unfounded and lacking a basis under CPLR 2221 (e) to grant her application. The Court further notes that a renewal motion is not a vehicle to argue once again the questions previously decided by the Court.

Claimant's motion to renew is DENIED.
