Consult with a local lawyer. Statutes of limitation and what tolls these deadlines is best addressed by a local lawyer. The answer varies from one state to the next. Good luck.
Sorry to hear about this. You will want to contact a local attorney in your area to review the matter for you. The statute could depend on the specific cause of action.
Statements in the course of litigation and utilization of court processes are not subject to defamation law. There are, instead, potential abuse or process and malicious prosecution claims, but these are very difficult cases with high standards of proof and exacting procedural gauntlets.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.
