Case Summary

P1231 A plaintiff who is ignorant of the true identity of a defendant or of the defendant's connection with an action, may file an action against a fictitiously named defendant (e.g., Doe) and amend to substitute the true name when plaintiff discovers the defendant's identity or connection with the case; if the complaint against the fictitiously named defendant was timely, the statute of limitations is not an issue at the time the amendment is made, and neither is plaintiff's diligence or lack of it in discovering the information.
