The Statute of Limitations - The statute of limitation refers to the length of time in which a plaintiff can file a claim. The principle behind statute of limitation is that lawsuits cannot be improved as time passes by. For one, clear details of the facts can be blurred as memories can fade and witnesses may die, go away, or lose interest of the case.

The Statute of Frauds and the Uniform Commercial Code - Statute of Frauds The primary purpose of the “Statute of Frauds” (SOF) is to protect the interests of parties once they are involved in litigating a contract dispute (Spagnola, 2008).

As Envisioned in the 18th Century: Narrowing the Alien Tort Statute to its Original Application - In the past thirty years, claims brought under the Alien Tort Statute (ATS) by non-U.S. citizens against U.S. corporations has increased exponentially.

Modern Law in Australia - ... Precedents are also created if a dispute arises in the actual interpretation of statute laws. In these situations, judges attempt to clarify these ‘gaps’ or misunderstandings in the law (Statute and Common Law, 2014).
