it would be in the state of tennessee - davidson county and williamson county. but there was a bankruptcy involved and i guess that would be federal.
these questions are for a client and your questions take a few minutes to get answers from him.
this was a federal case because he was in the bankrtuptcy at the time of the trial he was in chape\ter 11 for 12 years all thru this trial.

I appreciate your question and repeat customers. You can request me by beginning your question with "Dear XXXXX..."
you concentrated only on the judgement issue. what i need to know is if fraud was presented to the court is there a statute of limitation that applies to challenging or opening the case again?
Unfortunately no. The case, even if there was fraud, cannot be appealed (over turned) after 30 days. That is a hard and fast deadline for Civil cases. Criminal cases have exceptions for fraud, etc.
I concentrated on the judgment Statute of Limitations because that is the only hope.
dear mr. legal: i have been told this afternoon by a nashville, tnattorney that there is no statute of limitations on fraud presented tothe court, which is exactly the opposite of what you told me. ????? p[erryXXXX
Perry,I am not sure what you discussed with the attorney. Based on the information you provided, I gave you the law in the situation. The legal analysis of a case is always much better when you are able to have a full in person discussion with the attorney. The attorney can bring out facts that can make a huge difference in even the application of law. I will opt out of the question to see if another expert would be better suited to help you further.
