Very short background is I've submitted a motion for summary

Very short background is I've submitted a motion for summary judgment (as defendant in breach of contract case) and I've received an objection.My understanding of summary judgment is the judge will rule on only files recorded with the case, the motion, objection, and any testimony or arguments at the hearing.If the only evidence that the non moving party (Plaintiff) presents is a sworn statement by the plaintiff, shouldn't the judge decide in favor of the moving party? I say this because the affidavit should be considered hearsay and the non moving party provided no evidence to backup their claims.

It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: FloridaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not yet...JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes, what happened is that I was a partner on a LLC in New Mexico, at that time I contracted the services of a company called Incorp to serve as Registered Agents, but later I have sold my shares (around 4 yrs ago), but they are still billing me besides I've not longet anything to do with the Company, but they are trying to held me liable for all the fees incurred all these years since they say that I've had to cancel before leaving the company, or have made the switch under a new responsible party.JA: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Lawyer.

I have a borrower that needs to borrow more money. The

I have a borrower that needs to borrow more money. The problem is, last time I lent him money he didn't pay it back and the statute of limitations (six years in Utah) has run. The borrower is willing to start making payments on the old loan if I give him a new loan. Without passing on the merits of this transaction, can you tell me if it is legal to start a new 6 year limitations period on the old loan as long as the borrower is fully informed and starts making the payments again?
