The judge determined it was too early to dismiss the claim on the basis of statute of limitations, he said, and left the door open for summary judgment on it.

Finnegan countered that the ruling reinforces his law firm’s ability to seek documents and conduct depositions of witnesses.

“If he [the judge] had completely thrown this out, it would mean we can’t do discovery on this claim or take depositions,” Finnegan said.
