CPLR § 202 Plaintiff is a resident of its state of incorporation

 CPLR § 202 Cause of action accruing without
the state

Verizon Directories Corp. v Continuum Health Partners, Inc., 2010 NY Slip Op 04640 (App. Div., 1st, 2010)

For purposes of CPLR 202, plaintiff is a "resident" of, and its cause of
action accrued in, Delaware, the state of its incorporation (see
Global Fin. Corp. v Triarc Corp.
, 93 NY2d 525, 529-530 [1999]; American
Lumbermens Mut. Cas. Co. of Ill. v Cochrane
, 129 NYS2d 489 [1954], affd
284 App Div 884 [1954], affd 309 NY 1017 [1956]). We reject
plaintiff's contention that, for purposes of the statute, it is a
"resident" of New York, or that its cause of action accrued in this
State, by virtue of its authorization to do business and asserted
extensive presence here (see Global Fin. Corp., 92 NY2d at
528-29). Hence, New York's six-year statute of limitations does not
apply (see CPLR 202),
and the action is barred by Delaware's one-year statute (10 Del Code
Ann, tit 10, § 8111).
