Unfortunately, there is no answer as to how long the judge will take to rule. You can call the court to see if they have any updated information, however, I would not call on a regular basis, as they are extremely busy. Good luck to you.
As you have already brought suit and await the judge's decision, there is obviously no statute of limitations issue present.
Four weeks is a tad long, but not extreme. Note that it is summer and the judge or his clerk may be on vacation.
As you presumably have a lawyer, s/he can keep you apprised of the progress - or lack thereof - regarding the decision.
The foregoing is for general information purposes and does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
The statute of limitations applies to how long a plaintiff has to instigate a civil lawsuit, and how long the government has to bring criminal charges. It does not apply to how long a judge has to rule on a case or motion. You should ask your lawyer to inquire what progress has been made.
