A series of amicus briefs were written in response to Defendants’ challenge to the constitutionality of the revival window provision of N.J. Stat. Ann. §§ 2A:14-2b, which allows victims of child sex abuse to bring civil claims, even when their claims have previously expired. CHILD USA argues that the revival provision comports with Due Process under the New Jersey Constitution and is in line with the national trend of adopting civil revival laws for survivors of child sex abuse to remedy the long-standing injustice of blocking their claims with unreasonably short statutes of limitations. The trial court declined to consider the amicus brief but still found the revival law constitutional.
