California lawmakers recently passed a “window” during which the statute of limitations is temporarily suspended for all cases against the Diocese of Santa Rosa, but you must act soon.
A short “window” of time, as it is often called, will allow anyone sexually abused as a child in California, including by Diocese of Santa Rosa priests and other employees, to file lawsuits against their perpetrators and the institutions that protected and enabled the abusers. This is the case even if the statute of limitations ran out a long time ago. The window is now open but will only be open for a very limited time. Once the window has expired, many clergy sexual abuse claims will be forever barred.
Therefore, it is very important that you contact us today to determine your legal options against the Diocese of Santa Rosa and anyone else who has hurt you.
