In 1985, CPLR 5601(a) was amended to narrow considerably the then existing grounds on which appeals could be taken as of right to the Court of Appeals. The amendment eliminated as grounds for an appeal as of right a reversal or modification respecting any part of the judgment or order appealed from, and it changed the unqualified prior requirement of one dissent to “a dissent by at least two justices on a question of law in favor of the party taking such appeal.” Although reduced in number, such appeals as of right still form an important part of the Court’s docket.
