For far too long, child victims of sex abuse have been largely unable to sue their attackers and those that protect them, because of NYS's antiquated statutes of limitations. As the New York Times pointed out in an editorial published in January of 2018 (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/11/opinion/albany-child-victims-act.html) by the time most victims of child sex abuse are able to report the crime, or think about filing suit, they are barred from doing so by NYS law.
The mayor of Pomona, N.Y. along with the Village and the Village Trustees have been sued in a Federal Civil Rights lawsuit filed in White Plains. The suit alleges that the defendants violated the civil rights of the plaintiff, former Pomona Village clerk Lisa Thorsen, by having her arrested. The arrest was based on a three-year-old bogus allegation that Thorsen stole postage from the village postal meter without permission.
