Statute of Limitations in RICO Actions

A variety of statute of limitations can arise in RICO actions.

1. Federal Caselaw 

In Agency Holding Corp. v. Malley-Duff & Associates, Inc., 483 U.S. 143  (1987), the U.S. Supreme Court held that a four year statute of limitations applicable to the Federal Clayton Act, would be applied in Federal RICO civil enforcement actions.

2. State RICO actions 

In Matter of Integrity Ins. Co., 584 A. 2d 286 (N.J. Law Div. 1990), the trial judge applied the federal determination to a state RICO action.

3. Tolling

Fraud is involved in matter RICO actions.  One question is whether concealment, false statements, or equitable tolling will apply to extend statute of limitations.
