CWN Editor's Note: In a 4-3 decision, the Louisiana Supreme Court struck down a 2021 law, passed unanimously by the state legislature, that lifted the statute of limitations for lawsuits for child sexual abuse.

In 2023, a lower state court upheld the constitutionality of the law. The Diocese of Lafayette and one of its parishes appealed the decision.
