Professor Marci Hamilton (Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law) just posted her annual review. It covers a range of topics including law, policy, legislation, scandals, awareness within different religious groups and more. She also spans the continents. Check it out.
In her review of Statutes of Limitation (SOL) she writes:
This is a true case of some states moving forward, while a handful like New York are stuck in antiquated laws that only help perpetrators and institutions that cover up for them. New York yet again stayed firmly mired in the five worst states in the country for victims’ access to justice. The Republican senate has failed to act, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo has ignored the issue.
Unfortunately, lobbying by Agudath Israel of America in collaboration with the Roman Catholic Church is one of the important reasons we have not had SOL reform in New York.
About Hawaii she writes:
This state led the pack with the first-ever two-year extension of a window (which revives previously expired SOLs for a set period of time), making their window the longest in history: a total of four years. This move proves that a window does not cause a state to sink into the ocean and is so obviously important to the common good (survivors, institutions, and the public alike).
Here is a 2014, 50-state comparison of civil SOLs for child sex abuse victims.
