Looks like the defendant answered the complaint by filing a general denial to the complaint, which is all you'd expect to an unverified complaint. You do have to assert any affirmative defenses you have at the time you answer a complaint, and statute of limitations is an affirmative defense that could be waived if not asserted in the answer. Virtually all answers therefore contain a statute of limitations defense, as well as other likely non-applicable defenses. I wouldn't read anything at all into it other than the defendant's lawyer doesn't want to get sued for malpractice.
