CHILD USA wrote this amicus brief in response to Appellant’s challenge to the constitutionality of the Hidden Predator Act’s revival window provision, which allows victims of child sex abuse to bring civil claims, even when their claims have previously expired. CHILD USA argues that Georgia’s 2-year revival window comports with Due Process and Equal Protection under the United States and Georgia Constitutions and is in line with the national trend of adopting civil revival laws for survivors of child sex abuse to remedy the injustice caused by unfairly short statutes of limitation.
