Landmark Bill Protects Children from Sexual Assault

On October 13, 2019, Governor Gavin Newsom signed Assembly Bill 218.

This new law gives victims of childhood sex abuse a limited opportunity to bring claims that would have otherwise been barred by the statute of limitations.

The new law, which goes into effect January 1, 2020 extends the deadline to file a lawsuit for childhood sex abuse to three years or January 1, 2023.

We are investigating claims for victims that have suffered childhood sexual abuse by individuals and institutions including, the Catholic Church, religious institutions, school districts, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Hollywood, and the entertainment industry.

This new law provides childhood sexual abuse victims an opportunity to seek redress for the injuries they sustained. Our legal team will fight for your rights and seek to bring you the justice that you deserve.
