New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division
CA 22-00294
* Court Acceptance Pending

CHILD USA filed this brief in support of Plaintiff-Appellant that this Court should reverse the lower court’s decision and permit Plaintiff to proceed with her claim under the revival window opened by the New York Child Victims Act (“CVA”). Here, CHILD USA argues that the lifelong effects of childhood sexual abuse prevent victims from bringing timely claims and that the science of trauma and delayed disclosure support the legislature’s compelling purposes for enacting the CVA revival window.
