Re: simple assault and battery

I am not admitted to practicie in SC, and have not done special reasearch on SC for this reply. However, statutes of limitation generally relate only to the date of filing a lawsuit. So long as that deadline is met, the statute of limitation is satisfied. Delaying discovery and trial after suit is filed is another matter. That should be addressed to a SC lawyer.
