Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.
Good afternoon. First, CA has a 4 year statute of limitations for written contracts, a 5 year statute of limitations for promissory notes, and a 2 year statute of limitations for verbal agreement. No matter what you have in your case, it is beyond the statute of limitations and thus that gives you an absolute defense. So, you simply answer the lawsuit or appear at the hearing and assert the statute of limitations as an absolute defense.
