METRO PORTOLIOS ESCAPES LIABILITY FOR SUING ON A
TIME-BARRED CLAIM DUE TO DEBTOR'S FAILURE TO VACATE JUDGMENT
In Raydos v. Cohen & Slamowitz (W.D. New York, 2009), a consumer sued Metro Portfolios and its attorneys, Cohen & Slamowitz, for allegedly suing on a debt outside the statute of limitations that led to a default judgment. The court dismissed the action faulting the plaintiff for first failing to vacate the default judgment. The court, honoring the "full faith and credit" doctrine, gave preclusive effect to the judgment and held that the plaintiff waived this defense/claim by failing to timely assert it in the state action.
