Disciplinary Counsel v. Elder, (SC 19698)

 

 

I am frequently asked whether there is a statute of limitations applicable to grievances. My response has always been, “yes, but it has never been interpreted as being mandatory.” After the Supreme Court’s decision in Disciplinary Counsel v. Elder, (SC 19698), officially released May 2, 2017, I can finally change my answer to a definitive yes, and the statute of limitations is six years.
