New York municipalities, school officials oppose lifting statute of limitations

Catholic World News - April 28, 2010

The New York State School Boards Association and the State Association of Counties are opposing a measure that would temporarily lift the statute of limitations on child sexual abuse cases, allowing victims to seek legal redress up to 40 years after they turned 18. The bill, which originally focused on the Church, has been expanded to include other public institutions.

    All of a sudden the shoe is on the other foot. All of a sudden the teachers' unions and the public employees' unions begin to see the wisdom of statutes of limitations. Gee, wonder why?
