A South Bergen NJ newspaper reports a very long statute of limitations in a legal malpractice case. Seemingly spread over more than 10 years, plaintiff was injured in a supremarket personal injury accident, and the case was dismissed. It appears to be some sort of calendar dismissal.
Defendant attorney did not tell his client. Now the shopper has successfully resisted summary judgment, and after appeal, is proceeding against the attorney in legal malpractice.
