In 2019, the New York General Assembly passed the Child Victims Act that revived child sexual abuse claims for one year. Due to the judicial barriers caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, including court closures, the Legislature extended the revival window for an additional year. Defendant in this case challenged, amongst other points, the constitutionality of the Act, including the extension of the window. CHILD USA wrote this amicus brief, arguing that the Child Victims Act comports with the New York Constitution’s Due Process Clause as the revival window and extension of an additional year were reasonable legislative responses to remedy the injustice experienced by child sexual abuse survivors due to New York’s inappropriately short statute of limitations for such claims and the numerous judicial and logistical barriers of an unprecedented global pandemic. On January 12, 2022, the Southern District of New York upheld the constitutionality of the Child Victims Act. Read the decision here.
