Maryland Attorney General Anthony Brown says office would defend Child Victims Act in court

February 23, 2023

Maryland Attorney General Anthony Brown said his office would defend a proposed law that would make it possible for child sex abuse victims to retroactively sue their abusers and the institutions that enabled them. Brown wrote a letter to Democratic Senate Judicial Proceedings Chairman Will Smith of Montgomery County stating his office’s most recent analysis of the pending Child Victims Act found the law was “not clearly unconstitutional,” and that Brown believes he could make a “good faith defense” of the bill’s legality if it’s challenged in court.
