Child Sexual Abuse
New York and New Jersey passed unprecedented legislation that opened the courtroom doors to survivors of child sexual abuse. The Child Victims Act allows survivors to recover from the perpetrators and negligent institutions that allowed for the horrific abuse to be perpetrated against them.
“The societal plague of sexual abuse against minors is now well-documented. Also well-established is how certain abusers – sometimes aided by institutional enablers and facilitators – have been successful in covering up their heinous acts against children, either by guile, threats, intimidation, and/or attacks on child victims.” ( 2019 New York Senate Bill No. 2440; 2019 Legis. Bill Hist. NY S.B. 2440)s
