This would allow @ejeancarroll and other NY sex assault victims of Trump to sue him in a NY court of law for the underlying sex crime that was committed, not just a later act of defamation. DOJ would not be able to save Trump this time.

Cyrus Vance, Jr.

✍️ We’re asking lawmakers to pass @bradhoylman and @LindaBRosenthal’s #AdultSurvivorsAct.

It's common for survivors of sexual violence to take a long time to be ready to come forward. New York's Statute of Limitations should not limit their avenues to justice.

1. Is this actually changing the SoL for criminal cases, or only detaching civil case limitations

from criminal ones?

3. I'm good with that. Changing the criminal one I'd be a little more ambivalent about

mainly because I think it's important that people don't let years go by ... given there could be (probably would be?) other victims.

Obviously people need SOME time, but ... multiple years should be ample.

Preferably its more in the days/weeks/months category.
