This week was a little slow, and we only received a few questions, some of which were questionable at best:
Q: Erik W. from Florida asked, “Is it true that if you don’t use it, you lose it?”
A: I was not quite sure what Erik meant. I interpreted his question in two ways;
(1) If you ask Lance Armstrong, he would probably tell you, yes, if you use, you will lose your titles, trophies and reputation… Up with hope! Down with dope(ing)! Or,
(2) This was statute of limitations question. The Statute of Limitations, according to LegalDictionary.com is, “A law which sets the maximum period which one can wait before filing a lawsuit, depending on the type of case or claim. The periods vary by state.” These statutes are in place to preserve the integrity of a case. Overtime witnesses can disappear or die, evidence can be lost or tainted and a witness can have a loss of memory or their memory can become foggy. All of these problems could have a drastic effect on the outcome of a legal proceeding.
