Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you. I encourage you to ask me for clarification, if you are not clear with my Answer.
Question: Please what is the statute of limitations (i.e. number of elapsed years)on false arrest cases handled in New york, as required by the New York State Supreme Court.
Response: 3 years, same as personal injury. See New York Civil Practice Law and Rules Section 214 subsection 5.
Hi, I have to amend my prior post.
I have just been informed by a colleague that in addition to the 3-year Statute of Limitations, that a Notice of Claim must be filed within 90 days of the incident, or you may be barred from suit against the city or state and its agencies.
