§ 6-36-24 Suspension of limitation.
Whenever any civil or criminal proceedings shall be commenced by the state to
prevent, restrain, or punish a violation of this chapter, the running of the
statute of limitations in respect of every private right of action arising
under this chapter and based in whole or in part on any matter complained of in
the proceeding shall be suspended during the pendency of the action and for one
year thereafter; provided, however, that whenever the running of the statute of
limitations in respect of a cause of action arising under either § 6-36-10
or 6-36-11 or both shall be suspended under this section, any action to enforce
the section shall be forever barred unless commenced either within the period
of suspension or within four (4) years after the cause of action accrued,
whichever is later.
