8 years ago????? I think statute of limitations may apply here I definitely agree, it is highly unlikely that this could be a valid lawsuit. The one exception could be that laws governing SOL's for litigation action state the action must be filed before the SOL expires. There is a small chance that the suit was filed before the SOL expired and the court is only now setting a date for trial. The best option is for the defendant to obtain legal advice before taking any other action. The majority of attorneys offer free or minimal fee consultations. The American Bar Association has a free nationwide referral service on their website,

By excluding a person from an auto insurance policy, you are stating that the "excluded" person will not drive the insured vehicle, and that you understand that the "excluded" person is not covered by your insurance in the case of any traffic violation (accident, ticket, etc.). It means there is no coverage available to the excluded person in the case of an accident while driving the said vehicle. There will be NO COVERAGE.

Unfortunately if you cosigned a loan that means you were willing to pay the loan if the other signer defaults and if that happen they will go by any means to collect that money that you "cosigned/said" you would cover if the other person defaults. I would go after that person that you cosigned for if it has gone this far.
