Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that the landmark Child Victims Act has gone into effect. Under this measure, individuals who have experienced sex abuse are now able to bring a lawsuit against their abusers regardless of when the abuse occurred. Survivors whose claims have been time-barred are now given a one-year window to have their day in court. Governor Cuomo signed the bill in February 2019, accomplishing a key component of the Governor's Justice Agenda.
