An appellate court dismissed a Palisades credit-card lawsuit for failing to produce admissible evidence demonstrating its possession of the account at issue. Palisades was unable to produce a witness with knowledge to cure the hearsay problems inherent in its relied-upon electronic records. Palisades Collection, LLC v. Kedik, 67 AD3d 29 (4th Dept 2009).

Alleged Assignee Fails to Establish Foundation for Admission of Electronic Spreadsheet: Palisades Collection, LLC v. Kedik

The alleged assignee of a debt sought to admit a paper copy of an electronic spreadsheet as evidence. However, the court ruled that the assignee did not lay a proper foundation for its admission under the business record exception to the hearsay rule.

3 Key Points:

  1. Lack of Proper Foundation: The alleged assignee failed to establish when, how, or by whom the electronic spreadsheet was made, and it did not demonstrate that the paper copy was a true and accurate representation of the electronic record.
  2. Personal Knowledge Requirement: A proper foundation for the admission of a business record must be provided by someone with personal knowledge of the maker's business practices and procedures.
  3. Admissibility of Electronic Records: While electronic records can be admissible as tangible exhibits, the party seeking admission must establish that the printed version is a true and accurate representation of the electronic record.

Case Citation: Palisades Collection, LLC v. Kedik, 890 N.Y.S.2d 230, 230–31 (N.Y. App. Div. 4th Dept. 2009).
