AB 15 extends the statute of limitations to bring California law into line with federal lawCurrent California law favors abusers because of the short window for filing claims,” said Assemblymember Holden. “Under California law, the time limit for filing is too short because gathering evidence prior to bring a human rights case is often difficult and time-consuming. And victims suffer mental and physical problems that prevent them from filing quickly. Because of that, many of these crimes are never prosecuted and the abuse continues.”Additionally, this bill would also revive eligible claims finally allowing victims of the Holocaust, Armenian Genocide, and other historic incidences of egregious human rights violations, to seek a remedy for the abuse they suffered.“This bill is a chance to truly make history and secure justice for those who need it most,” said Amanda Werner, Legal and Policy Fellow with International Corporate Accountability Roundtable. “We look forward to this important measure becoming law.”AB 15 is supported by a number of local, national and international human rights advocates including Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA), American Jewish World Service, Amnesty International, Consumer Attorneys of America, EarthRights International, International Corporate Accountability Roundtable and Oxfam.
