Childhood Sexual Assault Statute of Limitations in California

Guidance From California Childhood Sexual Assault Lawyers

On October 13, 2019, Governor Gavin Newsom signed California Assembly Bill 218, which significantly expanded the legal rights of survivors of childhood sexual assault. This is a historic time for the legal rights of courageous survivors of childhood sexual assault and provides a unique opportunity for survivors to seek justice and accountability through the civil justice system.

Statute of Limitations for Childhood Sexual Assault Civil Claims

California Assembly Bill 218 suspended the statute of limitation for three calendar years (January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2022) and allows a survivor of childhood sexual assault, regardless of their age, to file a civil complaint against the perpetrator of the childhood sexual assault and the perpetrator’s employer.

After December 31, 2022, survivors of childhood sexual assault must file their civil complaint before their 40th birthday or within five years of the date the survivor discovers or reasonably should have discovered that psychology injury or illness was caused by the childhood sexual assault.
