Scott M. Himes, a member of Stillman & Friedman, writes: Particularly because the predicate acts and racketeering activity underlying a RICO violation may be far-ranging and multi-faceted, precisely when the claim accrues can be fact intensive and, perhaps, murky. And when the plaintiff knows, or should know, that the claim has accrued so as to trigger the statute of limitations is an important issue. A recent Second Circuit decision addressed these issues.
