AB 3092 – Revises Statute Of Limitations For Claims Of Sexual Assault By Physicians At UCLA
Existing law limits the recovery of damages suffered as a result of sexual assault to claims commenced within 10 years from the date of the last act, attempted act, or assault with intent to commit an act, of sexual assault by the defendant or claims, commenced within three years from the date the plaintiff discovers or reasonably should have discovered that an injury or illness resulted from an act, attempted act, or assault with intent to commit an act, of sexual assault.
This bill extends the statute of limitations for claims for damages arising out of a sexual assault or another inappropriate contact, communication, or activity of a sexual nature by a physician employed by a University of California, Los Angeles medical clinic, or an active physician at a University of California, Los Angeles hospital. This bill allows claims to proceed if the underlying event took place between January 1, 1983, and January 1, 2019, and the claim is filed by December 31, 2021.
(AB 3092 amends Section 340.16 of the Code of Civil Procedure.)
