LEO: Filing Suit After Statute Has Run, LE Op. 491
Filing Suit After Statute Has Run.
September 3, 1982
It is not improper for an attorney to file suit on an overdue account after the statute of limitations has run since the limitation of action is an affirmative defense which becomes effective only if so raised. [DR:7-101(A)(1)]
