Tonight's special guest is Marci A. Hamilton from NY, an attorney who's leading the battle to eliminate the Statute of Limitations for issues of child abuse. Professor Hamilton has served as constitutional and federal law counsel in many important clergy sex abuse and religious land use cases in state and federal courts, and has testified before numerous state legislatures regarding elimination of the statutes of limitations for childhood sex abuse. She is frequently asked to advise Congress. She is an author, lecturer, and advocate on the protection of the vulnerable from religious institutions. She is also a national leader for legislative reform -- particularly Statute of Limitations reform through her website www.sol-reform.com -- for the protection of children from sex abuse. During 2012, she was honored as one of Pennsylvania's Women of the Year, and received the National Crime Victim Bar Association's Frank Carrington Champion of Civil Justice Award. Professor Hamilton is the author of "Justice Denied: What America Must Do Tp Protect Its Children" (2012); "God VS. the Gavel: Religion and the Rule of Law" (2005, 2007); and the co-editor of "Fundamentalism, Politics and the Law" (2011). She is currently a bi-monthly columnist for www.justia.com and was a bi-monthly columnist for www.findlaw.com for ten years.
