Henry v. Ford , 598 N.Y.S.2d 660 (1993)

Henry v. Ford


The Court ruled that the anti-pyramid statute does not allow the recovery of losses similar to the anti-gambling statute. Pyramid programs are illegal under statute, and New York courts will not allow recovery under illegal enterprises. The anti-gambling statute allows recovery of gambling losses to act as a disincentive to illegal gambling operations. The court held that if the legislature wanted to allow recovery of pyramid losses, they were the ones to undertake the change, not the courts.
