The Child Victim Act is now law and will have a significant impact on New York’s educational and religious institutions and other civic organizations that care for children. It extends the Statute of Limitations an additional 22 years so that victims of childhood sexual abuse can now initiate suit until age 55. It also allows a one year period for people older than 23 to file claims regardless of age, allowing claims that had previously been dismissed as untimely to be re-filed and re-litigated. Every school in New York is now vulnerable to decades-old lawsuits they may never have known existed. However, those lawsuits can only be commenced six months after the effective date of the legislation. Complaints can be filed commencing on August 14, 2019. This webinar will explain the Act, its ramifications, and what you need to be thinking about now to best protect your institution.
