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.

Where Predators Prey Upon the Young and Vulnerable

The Episcopal Church is a hierarchical religious organization with Bishops heading regional dioceses throughout the country. Like other religious denominations, the Episcopal church has faced numerous lawsuits arising from clergy sexual misconduct with parishioners of all ages. Some cases were related to the abuse of children; others involved male clergy who took advantage of their pastoral or counseling relationship with vulnerable women to manipulate them into sexual relationships. These clergymen , which includes priests and youth ministers, violated the sacred trust placed in them to focus on parishioners’ needs and to separate those needs from their own. Our firm is familiar with the organization and practices of the Episcopal church and has successfully handled numerous abuse cases involving Episcopal clergymen.
