We previously wrote about attempts by Colorado lawmaker Rep. Gwyn Green to pass House Bill 1011. The bill would lift the statute of limitations on all future cases involving the sexual abuse of children and grant a two-year period that offers those who are currently barred from doing so the chance to file a lawsuit.
Our concern with this piece of legislation was that it would only affect private institutions, such as Catholic schools, while public institutions would largely be immune. (A separate and wholly unequal bill was aimed at public schools.) We are pleased to note that the Colorado’s House Judiciary Committee killed Green’s objectionable bill yesterday.
