This month we will be looking at questions surrounding the Child Victims Act. It is a true opportunity for justice to people who for many years were denied the right. The abused will now have three years to bring a claim. With a new Act, there are always questions that we hope to be able to answer.
The window for bringing survivor claims is three years, as of May 2013. This means that any individual who was abused as a child can bring a claim against their abuser and the institution that protected that abuser. This is a special window that was provided for by the Minnesota Legislature and the Governor.
(update) Due to the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis Bankruptcy the deadline there is now Aug. 3, 2015
Justice can be found by acting now.
Abuse of children and the continued silence by the offenders need to be prevented. If you suffered, saw, or suspected such events, it is important to note that there is help out there.
