Dr. Reginald Archibald, an endocrinologist at the university from 1948 to 1982, allegedly abused dozens or hundreds of boys during his time at the University while studying growth problems in children, including molestation and photographing them naked.
Officials at Rockefeller University knew of the legitimacy of the claims for years before notifying the public. The university and hospital issued a statement confirming that Archibald had “engaged in certain inappropriate conduct during patient examinations” and that they “deeply regret” any “pain and suffering” the former patients felt.
In 2019, New York State passed a law known as the Child Victims Act, which created a one-year window for civil suits brought by former child victims, allowing them to make cases against the university.
Victims of sexual abuse were able to get financial compensation for crimes that occurred even decades ago.
Now, the Victims of Gender-Motivated Violence Protection Law creates a similar “look-back window,” during which victims of gender-motivated crimes of violence can file a civil lawsuit against their assailant, regardless of any previous statute of limitations.
Don’t wait – If you were a victim of Reginald Archibald, now may be your last chance to get financial compensation for your suffering. Contact Merson Law PLLC today to get started on your case.
