Q: Is there any way around the statue of limitation in a case of a civil lawsuit?
I want to proceed with a lawsuit against the fostercare agency which represented me during my youth for civil rights violations, financial fraud, as well as theft of services,& emotional psychological distress.
A tort statute is typically three years, but that is not the issue. The issue is whether the asker has standing to sue as a plaintiff against a foster care apparatus that included a family court. The answer will be no.
America's government creates problems for which they enact solutions. One problem touching upon this asker is the treatment she received while ripped away from her home and parents, and abused and ignored while with strangers. This was Trojan Horse legislation that led to immediate prosecution of parents accused of child neglect and abuse. A family court always found abuse and neglect, and always pulled the case through the ringer without pause. Federal matching funds flowed into state coffers.
There is no cause of action available to the asker. There is no such claim as negligent foster care. Filing a complaint will yield a dismissal.
