Legal Topics: Statute of Limitations

Statutes: (Additional statutes, regulations & opinions may apply to your specific situation.)

  • Minnesota Statutes, index topic Statutes of Limitations.
  • Finding Cases that Interpret a Statute, from the Minnesota State Law Library.
  • Resources: (Print resources are available at the Law Library and in county law libraries around the state.)

  • Criminal Statutes of Limitations , from the Minnesota House of Representatives Research Department.
  • Dunnell Minnesota Digest, Minnesota's legal encyclopedia, article on Limitation of Actions.
  • Statutes of Limitations: Is It Too Late to Sue? from Nolo. This site is not specific to Minnesota.
  • Because these questions can turn on so many individual variables, consultation with an attorney is usually recommended.


    DISCLAIMER:  As librarians and not lawyers, we can suggest resources but cannot give legal advice (such as which form to file), or legal opinions, (such as how a statute might apply to particular facts.)  To do so could be considered the unauthorized practice of law.  Even though we try to suggest materials that will be of help, further research is usually required to find a complete and correct answer.  For many questions, the best answer may be to consult an attorney.  For links to resources on finding an attorney click here.
