My question involves injury or loss that occurred in the state of: Massachusetts and Tennessee
As a child (many years ago) I was stranger raped. The rape took place on company property in MA, but the company is headquartered in TN. The rapist was an employee of that company and was at work at the time.
The rapist was charged, convicted and sentenced to prison.
Can I now file a civil lawsuit in federal court against the company? What is the statute of limitations that would apply.
I have read that the purpose of the s.o.l. is to protect a citizen's right to a fair trial which could be affected by memories from long ago, however, in this case, there is no question the rape happened, would that affect the applicability of the s.o.l. ?
