New Law, New Rights, Limited Time: The New Jersey Victims’ Rights Bill

On May 13, 2019, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed the Victims’ Rights Bill into law, effectively reforming the statute of limitations and opening a window for child sexual abuse survivors in New Jersey to bring civil claims against those who hurt them. See how the New Jersey Victims’ Rights Bill may help you.

All claims under the New Jersey Victims’ Rights Bill must be filed by November 30, 2021. Time is limited. Contact us confidentially today.

The Anderson Report: Sexual Abuse in the Archdiocese and Dioceses of New Jersey

This report below contains the names of clergy who were assigned within, worked, or lived in the State of New Jersey and who have been accused of sexual misconduct. The information in this Anderson Report is derived from publicly available sources, claims made by survivors to the dioceses and religious orders responsible for the offenders, and legal settlements made as a result of claims for sexual abuse. The vast majority of the claims against these individuals have not been evaluated in a civil court. Accordingly, the allegations should be considered only allegations and should not be considered proven or substantiated in a court of law. All individuals should be considered innocent until proven guilty. In many situations, the statute of limitations has expired preventing the cases from being heard in a court of law. Download the report.
