John Simerman’s article in The Advocate, “Louisiana high court weighs ‘lookback’ window for child sex abuse claims” details oral arguments heard by the Louisiana Supreme Court recently concerning the constitutionality of legislation to allow survivors of child sexual abuse in Louisiana to sue their perpetrators, regardless of when the alleged abuse occurred. The majority of these civil claims are against the Catholic Church who leads the fight against this Louisiana legislation.
Lamothe Law Firm attorney Kristi Schubert was quoted extensively in this article. Schubert “argued that the diocese’s position is extreme, and that the lawsuits aren’t only about the past but also about revealing continued abuse. You end up uncovering pedophiles who are still active. If the high court overturns the law, it will be a good day for pedophiles.”
Frank Lamothe, Kristi Schubert and Julien Lamothe have won numerous verdicts and negotiated life-changing settlements representing their clients in claims of sexual abuse. Please contact Lamothe Law Firm as soon as possible to talk about your possible claim.
