Statute of Limitations in the State for Adult Sex Abuse Claims Suspended

A new state law takes effect next Thursday that suspends the statute of limitations for lawsuits by people who say they were sexually abused as adults.

The first plaintiffs will include hundreds of women who say they were abused by prison guards.

Attorney Ben Crump and the firm of Slater Slater and Schulman are planning to file at least 750 individual civil lawsuits on behalf of women who say they were abused while incarcerated.

The same firm pursued child sex-abuse suits against the Boy Scouts of America and the Catholic Church.
