A colleague from another law firm calls you on the phone. He has a client with a clear-cut personal injury case, but, as a result of his failure to mark the critical date down in his calendar, the statute of limitations has expired. It is a lawyer's worst nightmare. What can be done to salvage the case and still provide an opportunity to help the injured client?
Rex Travis, an attorney in Oklahoma City, OK, received a phone call somewhat like this, hypothetically. Rex had an ace up his sleeve. He knew something that might remedy the damage and provide an opportunity to escape from the Oklahoma statute of limitations, gain the benefit of a longer Nebraska statute of limitations, but still permit litigation back home in Oklahoma.
How might such a miracle be accomplished?
