I found two reported Pennsylvania cases in which the plaintiff attempted to toll the statute of limitations on a defamation claim. In Dellape v. Murray, 651 A.2d 638 (Pa. Cmwlth., 1994), the appellate court rejected plaintiff's contention that active duty military service and the Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act of 1940 tolled the SOL. In Abernethy v. Williams, 584 A.2d 1085, 136 Pa.Cmwlth. 715 (Pa. Cmwlth., 1990), plaintiff argued that the SOL on defamation actions was tolled because he was subject to a mandatory arbitration provision in his contract with the local police department. The appellate court disagreed and upheld the dismissal.
