Contact Chiropractic, P.C., as assignee of Butler v New York City Transit Authority, 2016 NY Slip Op 73043(U)(2d Dept. 2016)
SOL on self-insured’s going up to the Court of Appeals.
“ORDERED that the motion is granted, and the following question is certified to the Court of Appeals: Was the decision and order of this Court dated January 20, 2016, which determined that an action to recover first-party no-fault benefits from a party which is self-insured is subject to a six-year statute of limitations, properly made?
Questions of law have arisen, which, in our opinion, ought to be reviewed by the Court of Appeals (see CPLR 5713).”
Admittedly, this is an issue I do not encounter frequently in my practice insofar as I do not represent or bring actions (usually) against self-insured entities. I am curious to see how this shakes out,
