New Arkansas Law Gives Abuse Survivors Access to Justice

By May 13, 2021 No Comments

In a breaking development, the State of Arkansas recently passed a statute of limitations reform law.  Senate Bill 676 (the “Justice for Vulnerable Victims Of Sexual Abuse Act”) creates a “lookback window” that allows victims a limited period of time to seek civil justice.  This important change in the law will help give victims the compensation they need to further their healing, as well as shining a light of the problem of systemic abuse in youth-serving organizations – making kids in Arkansas safe today.
