New York municipalities, school officials oppose lifting statute of limitations
April 28, 2010

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?
