Delaware Child Abuse Law Becomes National Model

On July 10, 2007, Delaware passed the nation’s toughest child sex abuse legislation, eliminating the state’s two-year civil statute of limitations in child sexual abuse cases and providing a two-year window, ending July 10, 2009, during which cases previously barred by the time limit can be filed.

During the past year, several adults have initiated cases against their childhood abusers and other states are watching what happens in Delaware to see how the litigation of this law unfolds.

The article to which I have linked has some quite insightful commentary, on many levels. I strongly encourage you to read it for yourself and formulate your own opinions about this issue.
