New York’s #MeToo Law Ensnaring Hollywood Celebrities Was Originally Created to Hurt Donald Trump

New York’s #MeToo law, known as the Adult Survivors Act, has ensnared many Hollywood celebrities and prominent Democrats who are facing accusations of sexual misconduct, assault, and rape dating back to the 1980s.

why is that? That’s because the law, signed by Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul last year, eliminates the statute of limitations for such complaints and does not set a deadline for when the alleged conduct took place.

The irony is that Hochul’s legislation was intended to hurt former President Donald Trump as he seeks re-election in 2024.

E. Jean Carroll filed the latest lawsuit against Trump on November 24, 2022, the first day the law went into effect. Carroll is suing Trump for assault and defamation, and a federal judge has scheduled a trial for January, just days before Republican primary voters begin the nomination process.

President Trump vehemently denied the accusations in a post on Truth Social.

“This is a hoax and a lie, just like every other hoax that has been instilled in me for the past seven years. And I shouldn’t say it, but I will. This woman is not my type. No!” the post said.

The lawsuit is one of many that President Trump’s political opponents have thrown at him in an attempt to undermine his efforts to retake the White House.

Under the Adult Survivors Act, plaintiffs have one year from November 24, 2022 to file a complaint. Recent weeks have seen a flurry of lawsuits against high-profile celebrities, including Jamie Foxx, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Cuba Gooding Jr., Bill Cosby, and punk rockers. Justin Sanemusician Axl Rose.

Actress Julia Ormond sued both Disney and CAA, alleging that she was sexually assaulted by Harvey Weinstein in New York in 1995, when Disney owned Miramax.

of autumn legend The actress claimed that CAA executives knew about Weinstein’s history of sexual misconduct and even retaliated against her when she brought up the 1995 incident.

Prominent Democrats have also been caught up in the law, filing lawsuits against New York Mayor Eric Adams, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and Brooklyn Sen. Kevin Parker.

In total, more than 2,500 lawsuits were filed during the one-year period. More may be coming soon.

Both lawmakers who proposed the Adult Survivors Act reportedly said they supported extending the deadline for another year.

Manhattan Democrats Sen. Brad Hoylman-Segal and Rep. Linda Rosenthal said they would also consider permanent changes to New York’s statute of limitations for sexual assault, according to NY1. report.
