http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=46936 Judge Baer DEFENDANT IS the landlord of Bronx buildings and co-defendant is defendant’s licensed real estate broker. Defendant’s present and former tenants alleged that co-defendant, on defendant’s behalf, sent monthly invoices for rent that defendants knew were false, since they had hidden, illegal charges based on defendants’ overcount of rooms in each apartment. The court had granted defendants’ motion to dismiss because plaintiffs’ civil Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) claim, which arose from defendants’ allegedly false rental invoices, was brought more than four years after discovery of the alleged injury. Plaintiffs argued that their RICO claim is not time-barred because defendants failed to prove that plaintiffs had knowledge of their injuries. The court denied plaintiffs’ motion for reconsideration, noting that neither inquiry nor constructive notice is an issue because the court had previously decided that at least some plaintiffs had actual notice of their alleged RICO injury in 1998.
