State to Approve Child Victims Act for Survivors of Abuse

The Buffalo News has reported that the State Assembly and Senate will pass a law raising the statute of limitations for claims against the Catholic Church, their employees and other who were involved in the abuse of children. This will include a one year “look-back” period for victims of any age to bring lawsuits over alleged sexual abuse no matter how long ago the events occurred. This will finally provide New York survivors with an opportunity to pursue justice for the unfathomable evil that was perpetrated on them.
