Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!
You would need to respond to the summons wither with an answer or a motion to dismiss.
Where the claim dates back 10 years, you can raise a statute of limitations defense to have it dismissed.
You may do so or have a lawyer retained to either file the motion or file an answer on that basis.
You or a lawyer can file. 10 years after the fact that defense is normally available to you!
