The $5M Verdict Against Trump: New Laws Allow Sexual Assault Survivors Another Chance to Face Their Attackers

The Trump Trial: How the Adult Survivors Act Gave E. Jean Carroll and Others a Voice

Splashed on the front page of every paper in the country is the story of the ongoing trial against Former President Donald J. Trump. E. Jean Carroll, a writer and a former columnist for Elle magazine, alleges that Trump viciously raped her nearly 30 years ago in a department store dressing room. A year ago, Ms. Carroll would not have been able to bring these claims in court. However, with the passage of the New York Adult Survivors Act, survivors of sexual assault are given a finite window within which these claims will be revived. That window ends on November 23, 2023.

LGBTQ+ Sexual Harassment in the Workplace in the Wake of #MeToo

While #MeToo has shone a light on the important topic of sexual harassment in the workplace, one issue that appears to remain in the shadows is sexual harassment perpetrated against LGBTQ+ individuals.  #MeToo has been groundbreaking in amplifying the voices of victims of sexual harassment and assault that have long been silenced.  However, the experiences of LGBTQ+ individuals, who have been shown to be disproportionately affected by sexual violence, are often excluded from the narrative.

New York’s Brand-New Law Protecting Sexual Assault Victims Rejects Old Excuses and Revives Old Claims

It is a scene we have all watched in movies and television: an unwanted kiss, uncomfortable advances, a forceful grope or, often, something much worse. Today’s social climate recognizes that these frequent workplace behaviors are inappropriate, unacceptable, and illegal. But for years, this type of conduct was excused and ignored, implicitly condoned, as “boys being boys” and “that’s just how it was back then.”  

Fortunately, New Yorkers benefit from some of the most progressive laws combatting the sexual assault of employees. The New York Adult Survivors Act is one such example.
