NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Proposed laws would permit survivors of gender-based violence to hunt authorized recourse even after the statute of limitations has run out.
Standing with survivors, New York Metropolis Council members Carlina Rivera and Selvena Brooks-Powers launched a invoice making a so-called “look-back window” for civil actions below the Gender-Motivated Violence Act.
“There isn’t any timeline on processing trauma,” Rivera stated.
“With the brand new addition of a two-year look-back window to the GMVA, numerous others would be capable of come ahead,” Brooks-Powers stated.
The laws was drafted in partnership with survivors and is supported by Democratic nominee for Manhattan District Legal professional Alvin Bragg.
