Hurwitz Fine Insurance Coverage Senior Member Dan D. Kohane has been selected to speak at the ACCC 9th Annual Insurance Law Symposium on the “Window Opening Statutes” panel.
Also known as lookback window statutes, Window Opening Statutes, are statutes that open, repeal, or extend a tort action statute of limitations). The panel will discuss their effect on insurance coverage disputes involving coverage for the underlying tort actions. For example, last year, President Biden signed a bill that eliminated the statute of limitations for people who were sexually abused as minors to file federal civil claims. State legislatures have passed similar laws that repeal or extend the statute of limitations for such claims. In 2019, New York State passed a “lookback window” statute, the Child Victims Act, that extended the statute of limitations for survivors of child sexual abuse in criminal and civil cases.
