http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=46419 Judge Spatt PRO SE plaintiff alleged that the defendants violated 18 USC �1961, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act. Plaintiff alleged, among other things, mail fraud, wire fraud and extortion. The court granted defendants’ motion to dismiss the amended complaint, finding that plaintiff failed to allege the predicate act of mail fraud by failing to set forth the content of the items mailed and by failing to specify how each of the items were false or misleading. Plaintiff also failed to allege wire fraud by failing to identify the dates that the alleged telephone conversations took place, where the phone calls took place and that during these phone calls, the defendants knowingly made false representations to plaintiff. The court added that it is unreasonable to assume that interstate use of the wires occurred because all of the defendants are New York residents, and no interstate calls were alleged in the complaint.
