I have a suspended license from civil judgement that happened almost 20 years ago, can I wait for SOL to run out?
I was named in a civil court lawsuit for an automobile accident where I was not the driver, but I was the owner and registered user of the vehicle. The accident occurred back in the mid 90s and a judgement was issued. Final judgement was issued on June 4, 1997 in the amount of approx. $7000. I'm sure with interest over the years, this amount has skyrocketed. As a result, my license was suspended. I called the courthouse and got the name of the lawyer on the judgement, have not contacted him yet. Will this judgement expire this coming june?(20 years if I'm reading the law right). If so will this satisfy the judgement for the DMV? If I call him and try to reach a settlement, will this renew the judgement or affect the statute of limitations if this judgement has one?

I have a suspended license due to a judgement from an accident that was in 1996. What is my best course of action
I recently found out that my license was suspended due to an accident and judgement. From what I remember, the accident was from a car that was in my name and was borrowed. Both the person who borrowed it and myself are listed on the judgement and it was just over $7000 back in 1996. I assumed he did not pay any of it, am I responsible for the full amount? Is there any statue of limitations for the judgement? I want to work out a payment plan with the Lawyer, but I am hesitant as I don't want to open pandoras box and "re-age" the debt. I also know that with 11% interest, the number is now much higher. I'm also worried that this judgement may affect me buying a house. Any info would be greatly appreciated

Is there a statue of limitation on DUI offences in the state of Florida
I was arrested for a DUI in 1991. I was not convicted. I refused to Blow, and I lost my license for a year. I completed the year of revocation, and was issued a new license. Now after 12 years go by, they suspend my license for not going to DUI school and substance abuse treatment. Is this right? Was it even Law that you attend DUI school back then? And technically, I was not convicted of a DUI, it was thrown out of court, I was only convicted of failure to submit to a breathalyzer test.
