Child Victims Act Does Not Violate Diocese’s Due Process Right, Nassau Justice Rules

New York Law Journal logo

The Child Victims Act does not violate the Catholic Diocese of Rockville Centre’s due process right under New York’s constitution, a Nassau County Supreme Court justice has ruled.

“Based on this legislative history, the court finds the Child Victims Act is a reasonable response to remedy the injustice of past child sexual abuse,” wrote Justice Steven Jaeger in a ruling filed Wednesday.

Jennifer Freeman with the Marsh Law Firm described the ruling as a victory for survivors and their families. She issued a statement saying the ruling ”is further proof that the Catholic Church’s efforts to subvert justice and escape accountability simply won’t work.”
