New York Child Victims Act Becomes Law

Moments ago, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the Child Victims Act into law.  This chapter allows victims of child sexual abuse, incest and related offenses to bring civil claims for injuries until they have reached the age of 55.  It creates a one year window to bring those lawsuits, starting six months after the enactment (August 14, 2019) and ending one year afterwards (August 14, 2020).
