Legal Momentum, the National Crime Victim Law Institute and pro bono counsel Covington & Burling, filed an amicus brief in the New York Supreme Court’s Appellate Division, First Department. This brief is in support of a sexual assault survivor and her right to anonymity in the civil court she brought a suit against her perpetrator in. This case invokes the New York Civil Rights Law § 50-b, which creates a statutory right for victims to file civil cases under a pseudonym by prohibiting the identification of victims in public documents.
