Are Survivors‘ Rights being Threatened by Failed Laws?
Aug 24th, 2021 by Legally Brief
Across the U.S., state legislators are implementing new laws to allow survivors of abuse additional time to file lawsuits against abusive authority figures.
Unfortunately, the Pennsylvania legislature failed to pass laws extending that state's statute of limitations. In the end, survivors, in Pennsylvania, do not have adequate protection to process abuse and hold perpetrators accountable.
On this episode, Alice Bohn, Legal Director at CHILD USA, joins the show to discuss the shortfalls and obstacles survivors will face in Pennsylvania.
Ms. Bohn is a graduate of Pepperdine University School of Law, where she oversaw initiatives to prevent child sexual abuse. Before law school, Alice worked in New Delhi, India with International Justice Mission on a national campaign to end bonded labor.
