What is the Child Victims Act?

  • Allows survivors of child sexual abuse to bring civil lawsuits against abusers until the survivor reaches age 55

  • Opens a one-year window for child sexual-abuse victims of any age to bring lawsuits for abuse

  • Revives previously-barred actions related to sexual abuse of children and grants civil-trial preference to them

  • Eliminates notice-of-claim requirements
