Decision

On October 25, 2004, the court directed that the claimant show cause why the claim should not be dismissed for lack of jurisdiction. The clerk of the court advises that claimant was served with the order to show cause by regular mail on October 28, 2004 and that said mailing has not been returned by the postal service.

This claim was brought against a private business. The jurisdiction of the Court of Claims extends only to actions against the State of New York and certain other governmental entities. The court has no jurisdiction over any private company or individual. The claim was never served on the Attorney General.

For the foregoing reasons, the court lacks jurisdiction over this claim and it is dismissed, without prejudice to whatever remedies claimant may wish to pursue against the defendant in a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
