Washington moves to end child sex abuse lawsuit time limits

Summary by Ground News
House Bill 1618 would remove time limits that have stymied lawsuits by some people who frequently do not fully confront childhood trauma until years later. The bill has passed the state House on an 82-14 vote and cleared a Senate committee last week. Washington's current statute of limitations requires victims of child sexual abuse to file lawsuits within three years of when the abuse occurred.
