It is unlikely that they can sue after the statute of limitations has expired. However, when the time starts is going to be in contention.

There is no statute of Limitations on warrants in any state, but if the Statute of Limitations for the crime has already expired, even though you will be picked up on the warrant, it will be thrown out once you get to court.

I'm assuming you are asking about a class A Misdemeanor... Generally the statute of limitations is 2 years.

No there is no statute of limitations on traffic tickets.

What you are asking about is a statute of limitations. If a creditor files suit after the statute of limitations has ended, you can file a motion to dismissed based on the expired statute of limitations. The length of the statute of limitations depends on the state and the type of claim they'd be filing against you.

There is no statue of limitations for a crime. It is not the same as an old debt

There will be no limitation in Massachusetts ans the issued ticket serves as notification of the violation. So the normal statute of limitations will not apply.

Yes, it can even if the applicable statute of limitations on the claim has expired. A court will not refuse to accept a complaint for action just because the statute of limitations has expired. Nothing in any court rule forbids a plaintiff from filing an action that is beyond the statute of limitations. In fact, court rules require that a defendant must make an affirmative statement in the answering pleading that the claim is barred by the statute of limitations or that defense will be waived and the action may proceed even though the statute of limitations has expired. Once the statute of limitations has been raised as an affirmative defense, the plaintiff is required to prove that the SOL should not bar its claim.

Answer: Probably not. You can only sue if you have a promissory note (promise to pay in writing) and they have a short statute of limitations that has likely expired. Check your state statute of limitations. A mortgage would have a longer statute of limitations.

The statute of limitations is a valid defense. However, the ability to toll the time limits may provide a way around the timing.

You need to consult with a criminal attorney. They will know whether the limit has actually expired.

There will be no statute of limitations for a ticket in Texas. The ticket provided notice that you violated the law. The time the jurisdiction may collect is set by the city or town.

If the statute of limitations has expired, the collection agency is just blowing smoke. Tell them that you know the statute of limitations has expired and they have no right to harass you.

Not if the judgment was obtained before the statute of limitations for the debt expired. The statute of limitations requires that a lawsuit be filed on the claim before the limitation runs out. While it might prevent the plaintiff from getting the judgment, but it does not invalidate the judgment.

User Avatar

Tickets don't expire. You have been informed of your crime.

User Avatar

Yes you can if the statute of limitations for that crime have not expired.

User Avatar

If you have never been previously tried for it -AND- the statute of limitations on it hasn't expired, yes, you can.

User Avatar

No, you cannot file a lawsuit after the statute of limitations has expired. The purpose is to avoid an excessive time elapsing after the event. It makes it difficult for the defendant to provide a defense and the time affects the ability of witnesses to accurately remember what really happened.

User Avatar

Yes, if the statute of limitations for such action has not expired.
