Last week President Biden signed the Eliminating Limits to Justice for Child Sex Abuse Victims Act into law. The act eliminates the statute of limitations for a minor victim of a human trafficking offense or federal sex offense to file a civil action to recover damages.

The text of the law can be seen here:

The new law eliminates the statute of limitations—currently set at 10 years—for a minor victim to file a civil action to recover damages for several federal crimes against minors, including sexual abuse, trafficking, exploitation, and pornography. The act would apply prospectively and retroactively, allowing civil suits to be brought for actions committed more than 10 years ago.
