Clergy Sexual Abuse in Minnesota
In 2013, the State of Minnesota enacted the Minnesota Child Victims Act – a law that allowed victims of child sexual abuse a three-year window to file a civil action – even if in the past you were told that because of a statute of limitations you could not. Keep in mind that this was a unique window of opportunity for survivors of sexual abuse as a child to begin a journey of hope, healing and justice was only open for three years and expired in May of 2016. However, you still have rights and may be able to bring a claim under Minnesota law. Contact us confidentially today.
