Coto Settlement v. Eisenberg, No. 08-35966

In an action claiming that plaintiff was entitled to part of an amount refunded by the Federal Trade Commission following a judgment against plaintiff and defendants, dismissal of the action as untimely is affirmed where defendant's actions in raising the reserve requirement of entities partially controlled by defendant gave rise to plaintiff's claims in 2000, and therefore the statute of limitations began to run at that time.
