After a business partner defaulted an agreement to pay for property my mother tried to sue this person but was threatened by this individual, who sent people to threaten her life if she got involved, and she was not helped by her lawyer at the time so this individual, despite still not having lawful permission, did a lot of illegal work to stay with the property. If this occurred 12 years ago but someone was able to finally testify that my mother was threatened is it possible that a statute of limitations would not apply to this person?
