New York Child Victims Act
"Who may avail of the provisions in the Child Victims Act?
All residents of New York who allege they were sexually abused in childhood. Persons in other jurisdictions may also sue persons and/or entities resident in New York at the time of the abuse.
For example, a person who resides in Washington may have been statute barred in their own state because they brought a case more than 10 years after their 18thbirthday. However, they could bring a case against Jehovah’s Witnesses’ legal entities in New York, if it is alleged that the corporations of Jehovah’s Witnesses located in New York were negligent in protecting the alleged victim from their abuse."
New York Law Means Justice for All: The Child Victims Act
"For the majority of survivors of abuse, the new law is a welcome legal tool, but only for citizens of New York State. However, for Jehovah’s Witness victims, the legislation is far more significant. The Witness organization is headquartered in New York, which means that any and all cases from all 50 States are eligible where the Watchtower Organization is a defendant."
