brief to court of appeal so far
Are you asking how long to charge you here and did you raise this at trial in any way?
no i am not asking about charge .i am asking if there is a statue of limitation for to file a civil suit for wrongful arrest and imprisonment,while the case is going through an appeal process.
This would fall under personal injury..
The following periods represent a small sample of the statutory limitations periods in Wisconsin. Please note that it may be possible to bring multiple causes of action from a single incident of wrongful conduct, and thus even if it appears that the relevant Statute of Limitations has run it may remain possible to bring a different claim. Also, there may be an exception to the standard limitations period that applies to any given situation. The following list is provided by way of example. If you wish to know how the statute of limitations applies to a specific situation, you should verify the statutory time period and its relevance to your situation with a qualified Wisconsin lawyer.
Professional Malpractice: Medical malpractice actions must be filed within three years of the date of the act or omission resulting in injury, or one year from the date the injury was or reasonably should have been discovered, whichever is later. However no medical malpractice action may be filed more than five years from the date of the act or omission underlying the claim.
Personal Injury: 3 years.
Fraud: 6 years.
Libel / Slander / Defamation: 2 years.
