    Default Can attorneys lie in their answer?

    for example - the shortest SOL I know of for anything is 1 year. if all the allegations in the complaint take place within the last year, how can the atty affirmatively allege that the plaintiff's claim are out of SOL? I know he has to raise his defenses or he waives them, but how can he outright lie? and he put unknown for the stupidest stuff too.

    Default Re: Can attorneys lie in their answer?

    Affirmative defenses are often laundry lists of "everything I can think of which might conceivably apply". I don't think that's good practice, but it's nonetheless the way a lot of firms practice.
