New York Catholic Abuse

New York's Catholic Dioceses, like so many around the United States, systematically covered for sexually abusive clergy members. As a result, in September 2018, the New York State attorney general began an investigation into whether New York Catholic officials covered up allegations of sexual abuse of children.

New York has also recognized the state's current civil statute of limitations is too short, and that survivors of clergy sex abuse need more time to come forward and hold the Church accountable in court.

Potential Legal Changes Mean The Time To Act Is Now

New York is very close to passing the "Child Victims Act," which will eliminate New York's statute of limitations for all abuse victims for a one-year period. New York's Child Victims Act may pass in early 2019, meaning the time to act is now.
