NEW YORK, March 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP, a law firm based in New York City, has filed a lawsuit in Westchester County Supreme Court (54510/2020), alleging that in approximately 1977 &/or 1978, when Plaintiff was between 10-12 years old, he was repeatedly sexually abused by Art Simmons, an employee, volunteer and/or agent of Defendants Family Services of Westchester, Inc. and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Throughout the period in which the abuse occurred, the lawsuit alleges that Defendants negligently employed and/or retained employees and/or volunteers, and/or agents who sexually abused minors, including Plaintiff, and gave them access to children. This lawsuit arises out of Plaintiff's significant damages from that sexual abuse.
This lawsuit was filed under New York's Child Victims Act which allows innocent victims of child sexual abuse, like this child, the opportunity to seek compensation and hold their perpetrators accountable. Prior to the enactment of the Child Victims Act last year, the statute of limitations would have already expired for this child sexual abuse victim. Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP has filed a lawsuit against Family Services of Westchester, Inc. and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America on behalf of this adult survivor of child sexual abuse.
