PRESENT: PETER W. HALL and GERARD E. LYNCH, Circuit Judges, TIMOTHY C. STANCEU,[*] Judge.
Appellant Karen Marie Adams appeals from an order of the district court denying her motion for reconsideration of its order denying her motion for a preliminary injunction. We assume the parties’ familiarity with the facts, proceedings below, and specification of issues on appeal.
This Court has jurisdiction to review the denial of a preliminary injunction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1292(a) See Mastrovincenzo v. City of New York, 435 F.3d 78, 88
(2d Cir. 2006). In addition, “a notice of appeal from denial of a motion to reconsider, filed within ten days of the order or judgment sought to be considered, suffices
to bring up for review the underlying order or judgment, at least where the motion renews arguments previously made.” “R” Best Produce, Inc., v. DiSapio, 540 F.3d 115, 121 (2d Cir. 2008); see also id. at 122 (noting that during the pendency of the events at issue the time period for moving for reconsideration excluded weekends and holidays). The district court issued its order denying Adams’s request for a preliminary injunction on January 18, 2008, and Adams filed her motion for reconsideration six business days later. We therefore review both the initial order denying Adams’s motion for a preliminary injunction and the denial of her motion for reconsideration of that order.
Adams sought a preliminary injunction to prevent Standard Federal Bank from “taking any further action to evict or otherwise dispossess Plaintiff of the premises at 20 Thompson Road, Keeseville, New York.” Adams concedes that she has been evicted from these premises. Accordingly, this appeal is moot with respect to both the denial of Adams’s motion for a preliminary injunction and the denial of her motion for reconsideration. See White River Amusement Pub, Inc. v. Town of Hartford, 481 F.3d 163, 167 (2d Cir. 2007) (“[a] case is moot when the issues presented are no longer `live’ or the parties lack a legally cognizable interest in the outcome”) (quoting City of Erie v. Pap’s A.M., 529 U.S. 277, 287, 120 S.Ct. 1382, 146 L.Ed.2d 265 (2000)) (internal quotation marks omitted). To the extent Adams seeks to avoid this result by pointing to other issues she attempted to raise in her motion we note that those issues remain pending before the district court and that no appealable final order regarding these issues has been ordered. The appeal is DISMISSED as moot.
