A: First, you may only have up to the five-year point before the statute of limitations runs and it is too late to file suit.

Second, if your contract was formed in Missouri you could file suit here. Collecting the judgment may be the hard part, especially because the defendant is in Florida. OJ moved there, perhaps for that reason.

Contact a Missouri consumer law attorney.
