Drew:There might be a super unusual fact pattern to stay the tolling of the statutue if for example you had been in a coma for 19 some years and just now came out of it....but thats NOT what you posted.
If he had been mentally incompetent that would toll the statute of limitations (SOL) in Colorado unless there had been a court appointed guardian or conservator for him. If the SOL was tolled for that reason, he'd have 2 years from the time that mental incompetence ended to pursue the lawsuit. I would have expected him to mention something like that in his post, however. Apart from this very slim possibility, the SOL in Colorado has run on this claim, as I mentioned before.
