The Statute of Limitations in Your State As mentioned above, every state has enacted its own statute of limitations, requiring any personal injury suit be filed in court within a set time after the incident or injury. The specific limit prescribed by each state is identified in the chart below, along with a link to the relevant state law.

Do you think because it was a high-profile case and not only did a person lose his life as a result of the "alleged" fake accusation decided by the court but that families were destroyed in the process could be the MAIN reason why New York is upholding this suit against Brawley? Or is it merely a black and white issue? Just askin.

So do you think she was FORCED to recant her statement about this alleged rape due to public pressure? And what about Sharpton? He had to pay damages for this claim. So do you think it was conspiracy against black people coming forward against white America? Cuz this reminds of the Haiti man who was raped by NY policemen who used a broomstick.

I think that her and her family were threatened and had to weigh whether or not getting a conviction was worth her life. This guy is capitalizing on their giving up, which was interpreted as an admission that she was lying by racist America, and Americans that live in fantasy world about how deadly police are where Black people are concerned, or how the right people with the right connections and/or the right amount of money, can get away with whatever they want in America. "So do you think...

I agree. However sad it is. It seems black people have always been placed many times between a rock and the police...especially in New York. And we know this girl can't pay that amount of money. What happens now I wonder. Will she be imprisoned for nonpayment or will it go against her credit/reputation? Anyway it goes it is tragic all the way around. But!

Bottom line here is hat he shouldn't have been able to sue first because she was a minor at the time of the offenses AND the statue of limitations as it was pointed out by sunnubian. Tawana needs to get a lawyer.

(From the movie Do the Right Thing and reads "TAWANA TOLD THE TRUTH!") One thing I noticed about the "color-free" citizens of our country is that they seem to have a hard time letting a "color-ful" person reform their image and rebuilt their lives. Kind of like people of color are "Strike One, You're OUT!!" This story is an example of that, but here are some others...Michael Vick, Isiah Washington, Vanessa Williams, Michael Jackson, Ray Lewis, Mike Tyson, etc...but others are allowed...like...
