Attorney obtained summary judgment on behalf of a large bank
Attorney obtained summary judgment on behalf of a large bank. Summary judgment was granted in favor of the bank and against a hostile and experienced pro se litigant after protracted discovery and multiple disputes. Plaintiff claimed that the bank closed his credit card accounts "in the post 9/11 world" because he is a Muslim, which amounted to a breach of contract and violation of the Equal Credit Opportunity Act. A prior motion to dismiss was denied. The judge held that plaintiff's statutory claim was time barred and that he failed to identify what contract was breached or the manner in which it was breached. Plaintiff has promised to appeal.
