NEW YORK (TIP): The New
 York State Catholic Conference just released its testimony from the 
joint Legislative Hearing regarding the 2018-2019 Public Protection 
Budget, which addressed the Child Victims Act (CVA).


While the Conference supports a 
prospective extension of criminal statute of limitations for survivors, 
it hypocritically continues to reject providing any avenue of relief for
 survivors over the age of 23 whose claims have expired, claiming:




   






“This extraordinary provision would 
force institutions to defend alleged conduct decades ago about which 
they have no knowledge, and in which they had no role, potentially 
involving employees long retired, dead or infirm, based on information 
long lost, if it ever existed. To be clear, this provision would allow 
claims from even the 1940s or 1950s to be resurrected. Statutes of 
limitation are an essential protection of American law because they 
ensure that claims can be fairly adjudicated in a timely manner based on
 credible evidence.”
