Time limit search suit

Customer Question

time limit for illegal search suit

The time limit (or statute of limitations) to file a suit against a city, county or the state of Arizona is 180 days to file a formal claim (which means that you put them on notice of your intent to sue) and one year to actually file the suit in a court of proper jurisdiction. The statutes for this requirement can be found in Ariz. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 12-821 and § 12-821.01.

It is a pretty quick turnaround. The statute of limitations for an illegal search would begin after it is determined that the search was illegal by a court of law, or by the date the incident occurred if no determination was made by a court.
