Court Denies Rushmore Recoveries X, LLC's Motion for Summary Judgment due to its Failure Establishing an Evidentiary Foundation

In Rushmore Recoveries X, LLC v. Skolnick (Nassau Cty. Dist. 2007), Rushmore Recoveries X, LLC attempted to support a motion for summary judgment against a Citibank consumer with an affidavit from an individual who claimed to be personally familiar with the facts related to the action. The court held that this "custodian of records" had no personal knowledge of the account agreement between the consumer and Citibank because his claimed familiarity was simply taken from documents created by Citibank itself. Rushmore Recoveries X, LLC further failed to provide proper proof of its alleged assignment of the debt and failed to submit any proof of an agreement between Citibank and the consumer.

The court held that debt purchasers like Rushmore Recoveries X, LLC must establish that documents fall within the "business records exception" to the hearsay rule in order to establish a prima facie case. Because Rushmore Recoveries X, LLC could not establish that the documents were made in the regular course of business; that it was the regular course of business to make the documents; and that the documents were made contemporaneously with the recorded event, it did not tender proof in admissible form and its motion for summary judgment was denied.
