Legislators May Extend Statute of Limitations For Sex Abuse Claims Against Hospital

From the AP: "Connecticut legislators are considering a plan that may allow more people to sue St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center in Hartford over alleged child sex abuse by a prominent doctor." The proposed "measure would extend a statute of limitations to 2010 in the case of Dr. George Reardon, who began working at St. Francis in 1963." There are "more than 100 people who say Reardon abused them when they were children...now suing the hospital, claiming negligence in failing to prevent Reardon's actions."
