North Carolina Statute of Limitations for Intrusion Claims

The statute of limitations for intrusion claims in North Carolina is either 1 or 3 years. Because there is no specific statute on point, North Carolina courts would either use the same limitations period for intrusion as they do for libel, slander and defamation suits (1 year), see N.C. Gen. Stat. 1-54(3), or the general (3 year) catch-all statute of limitations for claims that are not specified elsewhere, see N.C. Gen. Stat. 1-52(5).
