It may be possible to salvage a blown SOL in a state with a longer limitations period than Oklahoma's. I have saved more than one attorney from a malpractice suit in this way. Of course, you have to have a defendant amenable to personal jurisdiction in the state with the longer SOL. Sometimes, however, you can get away with having a defendant who doesn't understand jurisdiction and shows up and defends in the other state without raising a jurisdictional problem.
