Case Voluntarily Dismissed by Debt Buyer
Portfolio Recovery Associates, LLC v. L.C. - Nassau County District Court
A popular debt buyer filed a lawsuit against our client, we timely answered the complaint to protect our client from an automatic default judgment. After a year passed, we made a 90 day demand under CPLR 3216. This is the "want of prosecution" law. If a Plaintiff fails to move a case forward in a year, than the court may dismiss it for failing to prosecute.
We brought the motion to dismiss for want of prosecution and the creditor agreed to voluntarily dismiss the case with prejudice.
