The Effect of “Look-Back Windows” on Church Sexual Abuse

The Effect of “Look-Back Windows” on Church Sexual Abuse

Over the last several years, 15 states have changed laws to extend the statute of limitations on the filing of sexual abuse lawsuits. Eight of those states have implemented “look-back windows” for survivors who were time-barred by the meager statutes of limitations before the laws changed. How do these new laws, and look-back windows in particular, affect survivors? How do they affect churches? We’ll tackle these questions in today’s episode!
