Attorneys are calling it a historic moment.

Childhood sex abuse survivors will now be able to have their cases heard even if the abuse happened decades ago.

The change now allows a one-year window for anyone who suffered child sex abuse to file a civil lawsuit no matter when it happened.

    I’m a black sixty four (64) years old male. I was sexually abuse by a white man in his park house way back in the sixties. I can’t understand why I can remember the abuse like is was yesterday. My life has been forever ruined.
