VICTIM OF CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE WHILE IN A PUBLIC SCHOOL OR PUBLIC INSTITUTION IN NEW YORK STATE? DON’T LET THEM GET AWAY WITH IT. THE CHILD VICTIMS ACT IS A NEW LAW THAT ALLOWS VICTIMS OF CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE TO BRING A LAWSUIT AGAINST A PUBLIC SCHOOL OR PUBLIC INSTITUTION EVEN IF THE ABUSE OCCURRED MANY YEARS AGO.
Today Governor Cuomo signed into law a landmark legislation called the Child Victims Act. This law extends New York’s statute of limitations to file a lawsuit and implement measures to bring previously time-barred claims, giving victims of child sexual abuse a chance to sue their abusers and the institutions that employed or associated with them, including public schools and public institutions, no matter how long ago the abuse occurred.
