Gov. Cuomo signed the NYS Child Victims Act into law over two weeks ago. The new law creates a one year, statute of limitations window for previously time-barred lawsuits. This new SOL window will open in approximately five months, giving victims of childhood sex abuse a new chance to pursue justice.
Martin, Harding & Mazzotti is actively leading the way, seeking to punish the institutions that aided and abetted this conduct and harbored the abusers. The signing of the Child Victims Act into law is a new chance for victims to come out of the shadows, shine a light on these institutions and get the justice they deserve.
At Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP we’ve also started a petition in support of Senator Catharine M. Young’s (R,C,I-57th District) Child Victims Fund in an effort to help all victims of childhood sexual abuse.
