ALBANY – The New York State Senate unanimous voted Tuesday to extend the lookback window for the Child Victims Act.

Victims will now have until August 2021 to bring about any civil action.

The vote was the first time in two months that the New York State Senate was back in session. Many members tuned in remotely.

The Child Victim’s Act was signed in to law last year and gives victims time to file lawsuits in cases involving abuse that may have surpassed the statute of limitations.
