Don’t know about MN, but here in CA, there has been a move on to do away with statutes of limitations on child sexual abuse that only apply to religious and private institutions. The public schools were exempt.

I don’t have an “about” page AND I don’t scour the Internet on a daily basis looking for negative articles about other religions!
LOL you've been following the Radio Replies series, haven't you?
I don,t know what the time limitation should be but a thirty year old suing for something that happened at twelve is ridicules, just a money scheme.
Also it seems to be stupid to put kids in such a position where this kind of thing could happen anyway, providing they are really kids.
It was about going after the Catholic Church.
