In a dispute involving fraudulent wire transfers, district court grant of summary judgment for defendant is affirmed where: 1) plaintiff's action is governed by the Uniform Commercial Code and thus its claim that defendant wrongfully debited its account is time-barred by the UCC's one-year statute of repose; and 2) plaintiff's common law negligence claim is precluded by U.C.C. Article 4A.
