How did E. Jean Carroll successfully bring a sexual assault lawsuit against Donald J. Trump when the assault occurred over twenty-five years earlier and should have been barred by the statute of limitations? Why are medical centers being sued by patients who claim to have been sexually abused by physicians decades ago? And why are record labels facing claims concerning past sexual abuse allegedly committed by artists they had signed? In light of recent, nationwide changes to the statutes of limitations for both minor and adult survivors of sexual abuse, these types of civil claims can put organizations in a difficult and uniquely vulnerable position. 

This program will examine the policy behind this legislative reform, clarify the confusing patchwork of statutes of limitations now in play under these new laws, and highlight notable recent cases analyzing and interpreting these new laws.
