GALLIK v. FRANKLIN

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK


October 1, 1956

Paul GALLIK and Kate Gallik, Plaintiffs,
v.
Albert W. FRANKLIN, Jr., Joseph H. Meyer, Harold Barnett, Bernard Zoref, d/b/a Franklin, Meyer and Barnett, Defendants

The opinion of the court was delivered by: SUGARMAN

The defendants move to dismiss the complaint for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. The action is to recover damages allegedly sustained by the plaintiffs through dealing in securities sold by the defendants in violation of the 'Securities Act of 1933'. *fn1"

The complaint discloses that the purchase of the securities was completed by May 4, 1955; although all arrangements therefor, including the sale by plaintiffs through defendants of other securities and a small cash payment by plaintiffs to defendants, were completed before April 22, 1955, the date when the registration statement became effective. The complaint was filed on May 17, 1956. Accordingly, any liability of the defendants for a pre-registration sale of the securities *fn2" is barred by the statute of limitations. *fn3" The complaint therefore must be dismissed.

 It is so ordered.
