Re: "Cleaning Up the Burke"
In the US there is such a thing as the Statute of Limitations (I
understand you don't have it in Canada). DV
There is no such thing as a US "Statute of Limitations" (the use of caps
here bugs me as much as a reference to T. Rex might bug others on this
list). There are thousands of federal and state laws that place limits on
the time frame in which each particular law can be enforced (aka "statutes
of limitation"), and each depends on the court's determination of the
factual circumstances that apply to each case. The Burke situation is
enormously complicated legally, and the question is even more enormously
complicated if someone tries to draw comparisons between enforcement actions
against the Burke and other collectors.
