New York to suspend limit on adult sexual abuse cases for one year

ALBANY, NY—New York will temporarily suspend its civil statute of limitations for adult sexual abuse beginning in November under a law signed Tuesday by the governor. Kathy Hochul.

The Adult Survivors Act will open a one-year window in which people who say they were sexually abused as adults can file complaints against their alleged abusers, regardless of when they were abused.
