MTD and credit report

(1/3) > >>

I am new here and the search function pulled out way to much stuff to sort through all of it. I am sure this is a re post but I could not find it.  So you can just point me in the right direction :)

I am new york state in County Court. I have sent disclosure already and waiting for a follow up response. In the mean time I am working in filing a motion to dismiss based on the SOL of 3 years working off the case law court of appeals in 2010 ( i don't know the name off the top of my head) My question is will a copy of my credit report showing First Date of Delinquency work in an MTD to show the date of SOL? I don't have any bank statements or anything.   Do I need the Plaintiff the verify the report that its the correct date? If so how do I do this?

Had Enough:
Not sure where you got NY as 3 years.

I always thought it was 6.

I knew this would happen lol. New York is Six but the card holder agreement states its under Delaware law. Delaware law is 3 years. I got this case off this site actually. This is the basis for my MTD. My questions is will credit report work to show the date?

New York SOL - 3 years
« on: November 26, 2011 08:14:04 PM »


I noticed this hasn't been posted in the state forum but I wanted to point out a 2010 NY Appeals Court decision in which the consumer is entitled to their choice of the shorter of the two SOLs.

Portfolio Recover Associates, LLC v. King,+LLC+v.+King&hl=en&as_sdt=2,33&as_ylo=2010&as_vis=1&case=8626368307996834885&scilh=0



    Essentially, New York’s Court of Appeals held that a consumer was entitled to the shorter of New York’s statute of limitations (six years for breach of contract) and Delaware’s statute of limitations (three years for breach of contract).

    In coming to this conclusion, the Court did not rely upon the Delaware choice of law provision in the consumer’s credit card agreement.  Rather, the Court held that even though the credit card agreement’s “standard” choice of law provision only applied to “substantive” legal issues and not to “procedural” issues , such as the statute of limitations, the consumer, a pro se litigant, was entitled to Delaware’s shorter statute of limitations pursuant to CPLR § 202 (i.e. New York’s “borrowing statute”).  Specifically, the Court held that defendant was entitled to choose the shorter of the statute of limitations available in a the original creditor’s home state of Delaware, and the six year statute of limitations generally applicable to credit card cases under New York law.

    The Court explicitly held that it was the original creditor’s home state that was at issue, and not the home state of the debt buyer, who had purchased the account after default.

Any one out here have any experience with using a credit report to show the SOL as supporting evidence used in a Motion to Dismiss? Do I order a copy of the report and ask for an affidavit verifying its authenticity? I don't have have any bank records this is all I have.

Has anyone in new york state ( outside of new york city) filed a motion to dismiss based on the SOL. I have it all typed up ( the brief, with statement argument) I am just trying to figure out the affidavit stuff. Is the only affidavit you have to file the one that supports the motion? I will be notifying the plaintiff by certified mail.
