Bishops endorse bill lifting time limits in abuse suits

The Denver Post

Colorado's three Catholic bishops on Friday endorsed legislation that would allow criminal charges against perpetrators of child sexual abuse regardless of when the alleged actions took place.

The church initially opposed House Bill 1088 because it also lifted the statute of limitations for civil lawsuits involving child sexual abuse.
