QUESTION

Auction house sold the item but the buyer didn't pay

Asked on Mar 18th, 2017 on Breach of Contract - New York
More details to this question:
Now the item actually "withdrawn" and the auction house will not reveal the name of the non-paying buyer without a subpoena so that the Seller can sue for non-payment. Is there a statute of limitation. (The deal fell through last year and the Seller got notified early this year)

A seller does not have a claim against a non-paying buyer at an auction.  The consignment is to the auction house.  You have no privity with buyers.
