Appellate Division, Fourth Department
Court of Claims
Notice of Intention — Accrual
Torres v. State of New York
Appealed from Court of Claims
Background: The claimant appealed from an order that granted the defendant’s motion to dismiss the claim on the ground that the claimant failed to comply with section 10 (3) of the Court of Claims Act. The claimant argued that the claim did not accrue until after he completed the grievance process with the Department of Corrections.
Ruling: The Appellate Division affirmed. The claimant was required to file a notice of intention to file a claim within 90 days of the accrual of the claim.
