Sears, Roebuck & Co. v. Merla, 142 N.J. Super. 205, 361 A.2d 69 (1976) (full-text).

Appellate Court Proceedings Edit

In this collection case, the court upheld the admission of a computer printout alone to prove the debt. The printout showed only dates of purchase, cost, departments, credit card number, payments made, and balance due, but could not describe the goods sold. Sears had destroyed the original invoices of the defendant's purchases so that the only evidence available regarding the defendant's account was the printout. The court held that so long as the proper foundation was laid, a computer printout is admissible on the same basis as any other business record.
