O'Keefe Posted April 26, 2019 Report Share Posted April 26, 2019 Hello there, So this happened: I just got a spam robo call that's been calling me nonstop. I never picked up the phone because I thought it was a typical spam call, but this time the pretext was that it was something legal and that they would proceed without my signature or some BS like that. I googled the call back number and it was clearly a spam/fraudulent call... but it got me thinking, what if there is a filed lawsuit somewhere? So I went to the NY courts to see if there was anything, the first tries I found nothing, but after tweaking a bit I found something that might be me. The plaintiff is a bank I used to have and the defendant coincides with my name (it could be a false positive of some other dude with my name), but I used to be a client of that bank so it could be a collection attempt. The filing date is in 2016, and there is no other information (every other field is blank, no calendar number, no Judge name). The only two buttons I see e-courts WebCivil Local are [Close] and [Add to eTrack] I am wondering if this strange status of the filing is because I wasn't served yet any documents yet, and probably this is because I no longer live in NY, ha! So what would be my options here? Does the Statues of Limitations even apply here? If it was filed on 2016, if the case doesn't move anywhere would that expire by 2022 in NY? I've been reading in some other sites that if the defendant is not longer in the state it would apply the jurisdiction of where he currently resides, so if I were living in Delaware they wouldn't have any case, is that it? Thanks guys, Regards Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
