Introduced in January of 2019, California’s new Assembly Bill 218 aims to empower childhood sexual assault victims by extending their statue of limitations for filing civil lawsuits. This would allow many people who were previously unable to sue the perpetrator, or the organization responsible for failing to prevent the sexual abuse, to pursue civil claims to recover for their injuries.
