I am sorry to read about your difficulties. However, I am not clear as to why you want to sue your former Landlord and why you think that the Statute of Limitations for your lawsuit has passed.

Kindly be more specific as to your cause of action-- what you want to sue the Landlord for.

Thank you for your cooperation.
