Hello again, Doug.Pursuant to K.S.A. 60-513(a)(2), an owner of personal property would typically have up to two years to pursue a lawsuit for conversion of the property, or sue for the return of the property. Here is a link to the applicable statute:http://kansasstatutes.lesterama.org/Chapter_60/Article_5/60-513.htmlIf you are served with a summons in the suit, you must file an answer typically and raise the statute of limitations as a defense in the case. On a motion to dismiss, the case should be dismissed by the court since the statute of limitations for filing the suit has lapsed.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
So in laymens (sp?) terms he has no case as long as I state the kansas statute of limitations of expiration? And you are saying that if he left his posessions for over 2 years without any contact...then how do I end that sentence?
Just making sure I understand.
just want to make sure I have my ducks in a row....
I'm sorry so just to be specific before I log off. Is the statute of limitations 2 years in Kansas?
For conversion and replevin (seeking damages for disposing of personal property or seeking the return of personal property) the SOL is two years, correct.
Thats what I needed to know. He is a little spooky. He has known to dissapear for years on end and then stalk people. He was suggested to make medication in the past when I knew hem 8 or 9 years ago. He left message that he was going to try and find me. But as long as I got your legal advise I feel comfortable. I really had no way of contacting this guy for 8 years until he call me a year ago about all of this. If he cared so much about his equipment, you would have thought he would have kept in touch.
