Alienation of Affection - Statute of Limitations
The Mississippi Court of Appeals decided Anderson v. Lander on Tuesday located here. The interesting issue in the case was whether the 3 year statute of limitation ran from the date the divorce was filed or the date the parties stopped having a relationship. Apparently, the parties got back together after the divorce was filed. The Court of Appeals found that the statute started to run the date they finally separated. This makes sense as how can the affection be alienated if you keep coming back?
