Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Unfortunately the statute of limitations for a civil fraud case in CA is only 3 years under CA Civil Procedure 338.
So no, the time would have passed to pursue some type of civil claim for damages.
There is also a 6 year criminal statute of limitations if this was a criminal act. So that has passed as well.
I am very sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers based on my knowledge and experience, even when I know the answer doesn’t make the customer happy...
