There are statutes of limitations in every state that apply to different types of cases. I need to know more about the type of lawsuit that was filed against you, and what you have done about it since it was filed last January. What does the complaint alleg that you did wrong? I will be available and online for the rest of the afternoon. I look forward to assisting you.

Hello again. I can tell you the N. Carolina statute of limitations statute is huge. From what you tell me it appears that the six year limitation period would apply to your situation. See: section 1.50

I hope that I have provided excellent service and, if so, would love a 5 star rating. If not, please let me know how I can further assist you. There is no additional charge to you for rating me. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
