Velocity Investments, LLC Fails to Lay Foundation for Admission of Credit Card Statements
In Velocity Investments, LLC vs. Cocina (N.Y.A.D. 4th Dept. 2010), the Appellate Division for the Fourth Department of New York held that copies of credit card statements that were allegedly sent to the cardholder consumer were not admissible as business records.
Velocity Investments, LLC initially sued the consumer for breach of contract and account stated on a credit card issued by First Consumers National Bank. First Consumers National Bank assigned the debt to a third party that then assigned it to Velocity Investments. Velocity Investments moved for summary judgment, and the consumer cross-moved.
The 4th Department agreed with the consumer that the lower court erred in granting Velocity Investment's motion because it failed to submit nonhearsay evidence. Velocity Investments submitted copies of the credit card statements that were allegedly sent to the consumer, but "failed to lay a proper foundation for the admission of those documents as business records."
