NJ sexual abuse lawsuit

Newark, NJ – Legal expert and advocate Stephen A. Weiss of NJ-based Seeger Weiss LLP today applauded Governor Murphy for signing a New Jersey law (S477) that significantly extends the statute of limitations for survivors of sex abuse. The new law also creates a two-year window to file cases for which the statute of limitations had previously expired.

“For too long big and powerful institutions like the Catholic Church and Boy Scouts of America seemed untouchable – many knew they allowed and covered up abuse, but it was difficult to hold them accountable. That ends now,” said Weiss. “By the time survivors of abuse are ready to come forward it is often too late to do anything about it in the courts. That’s not the case anymore thanks to the new law signed in New Jersey today. Now, all survivors of sexual abuse in our state have two years to seek the justice they deserve.”
