You say this is an "old BoA account"...how old is it? If memory serves...the choice of law state in the BoA cardholder's agreement is Delaware. The statute of limitations in Delaware is three years.


Thank you very much. I read the extremely small contract they sent as exhibit A, and in section 17.8, it states: GOVERNING LAW: THIS CONTRACT IS GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF DELEWARE (WITHOUT REGARD TO ITS CONFLICTS OF LAWS PRINCIPLES) AND BY APPLICABLE FEDERAL LAW.

This is over 5.5 yrs old, so how do I respond? Do I object to Exhibit A, or do I need to file something?

If the date of the last activity (usually a payment) on the alleged account was over three years ago (not the age of the account itself but the last activity on the account), you can use the time-barred debt affirmative defense when you file your answer. And you must file your answer!

This forum has lots of good examples of how to answer admissions and interrogatories and examples of affirmative defenses that you can tailor to fit your specific situation. Look under Sample Forms for help.

Good luck!
