Civil sexual abuse allegations are at an all-time in New York City for one reason: the Child Victims Act (CVA). CVA legislation has done away with the statute of limitations for civil sexual abuse cases for one year (August 14, 2019 - August, 14 2020) and already people have filed thousands of lawsuits, and experts estimate that citizens will have filed tens of thousands of suits by the end of the deadline.
In the middle of the lawsuit frenzy, some people will take advantage of the fray and point fingers at innocent parties in an attempt to make fast cash. Therefore, prominent NY figures should be prepared to handle false allegations of sexual abuse by talking to an experienced attorney.
Why the Rich & Famous Should Expect False Allegations
Many New York personal injury law firms are filing hundreds or even thousands of civil sexual abuse cases on behalf of clients, which means it’s not possible to appropriately vet each accusation. As a result, false claims will squeeze through the cracks and ruin the public image of innocent parties.
However, the accused can defend themselves against these baseless accusations.
