The Child Victims Act, which went into effect on August 14, 2019, allows persons who suffered sexual assault as a minor to file a civil action against their abusers and the institutions that enabled the abuse until the age of 55. (Previously, survivors of sexual assault only had until the age of 23 to file a civil lawsuit against.)
In addition, the Child Victims Act contains a “look back” window that now runs until August 14, 2021. This provision allows all victims, regardless of age, to commence a civil action no matter how long ago the abuse occurred.
