Lamothe Law Firm attorney Kristi Schubert was featured in recent media about the Louisiana Supreme Court decision pertaining to the constitutionality of Act 322 which revived previously prescribed child sex abuse claims. The Louisiana Supreme Court declines to address constitutionality of old child sex abuse claims, was written by David Hammer, Eyewitness Investigator, 4WWL.
Ms. Schubert said in this article, “We do have very clear legislative intent to revive all prescribed cases. And I’m very hopeful that the ultimate decision on constitutionality from the Supreme Court will be one that supports survivors of childhood sexual abuse.”
The Lamothe Firm’s founding partner, Frank Lamothe, whose law firm represents many child molestation survivors, supports the Louisiana Supreme Court’s decision to vacate the district court’s ruling that Act 322 is unconstitutional, but wishes the Supreme Court ultimately decided the issue of Act 322 and the Act 386 amendment on constitutional grounds.
“As Justice Weimer noted in his dissent, this is only delaying the inevitable,” said Frank Lamothe. “This means thousands of child sex abuse survivors will have to wait longer to know whether they can seek justice or not.”
