New York Child Victims Act

The New York Child Victims Act makes a necessary change to long standing precedent in statutes of limitations in child sexual assault cases. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has made this Act one of his top initiatives for 2018-19, and after the Legislature voted to approve the legislation on Monday Jan 28th,2019, it now heads to the Governor’s desk for his signature.

The Child Victims Act will extend the statute of limitations on child sexual abuse crimes to the age of 28 in criminal cases and the age of 50 in civil cases, with a one year-window to bring civil claims for victims below that age limit.

For more information on the act and if you feel that a claim can be revived, contact us today.

Harvey Weinstein wants venue change for battle with NY actress Dominique Huett

Harvey Weinstein wants a venue change for his legal battle with the New York actress accusing him of sex trafficking, the Daily News has learned.

At a Tuesday hearing for actress Dominique Huett’s lawsuit in Santa Monica, Calif., Huett’s lawyer revealed Weinstein plans to exercise his right to transfer the case from Los Angeles County Superior Court to federal court.

Weinstein already is fighting a similar sex-trafficking lawsuit brought by former aspiring British actress Kadian Noble in federal court in New York.
 

His lawyer in both cases is Phyllis Kupferstein.

“From our perspective, it’s still full steam ahead,” Huett’s lawyer Jeff Herman told The News Tuesday.
 

Herman also represents Noble and called Weinstein “a pimp in a tuxedo” at a hearing in that case in Manhattan federal court last month.
