Statute of Limitations Period for Filing Lawsuit regarding Domestic Violence and False Arrest in NYC

Brooklyn, NY |

my wife made up some stories and set up a domestic violence case against me. She abused process to let me get arrested twice. now the case is still going. but i want to sue my wife, her lawyer who helped her to make stories, social workers possibily police department. I dont know what is the statute of limitation period for this type of case in NY? Can I start filing lawsuit before all my charges are dropped? If I settle with my wife, do i still have chance to sue them again later? Will judge make some bias judgement if he knows I may bring lawsuit to police department later?
