This amicus brief was written as a response to Defendant Weinstein’s challenge to the constitutionality of the revival provisions of the Child Victims Act in New York. Issues include whether CPLR § 214-G is constitutional under the New York Constitution’s Due Process Clause and whether the negligence principle should be used to hold Defendants liable for facilitating sexual abuse. The NY Supreme Court has accepted CHILD USA’s Motion to participate as Amicus Curiae and upheld the Child Victims Act as constitutional.
