Legal Question

Asked on: 5/14/12, 10:30 am

I live out of state (virginia). A civil suit was filed against me back in (filed in Louisiana) 2008 and the last action on file with the clerk is a default action by the judge in June of 2009. I asked the clerk was there a judgement against me and she stated no. It only shows default. My question is this.....is there a Louisiana statute that places a legal time limit on how long a lawsuit may remain on file? To this very day.....I have never signed, or been served a summons for this suit in any manner. I guess they couldn't find me. Yet it remains on file. Thanks in advance for any help.
