Adult Survivors Act Soon to Be Law

New York State enacted the Adult Survivors Act to revive claims for sexual assault where the victim was over the age of 18 years old at the time of the assault. On November 24, 2022, a one-year look-back window will open to permit survivors of adult sexual assault to pursue their claims in court no matter how long ago the abuse occurred.

Mariann Wang participated in a Q+A session about the Adult Survivors Act and what it means for survivors seeking justice.
