CONTROVERSIAL CALIFORNIA BILL EXEMPTS PUBLIC SCHOOLS FROM SEX ABUSE LAWSUITS
Big Government ^ | 7-10-2013

Posted on 07/10/2013 12:36:32 PM PDT by markomalley

California Senate Bill 131, which is ostensibly about protecting victims of child sex abuse, forces private schools to defend claims of sexual abuse as far back as 40 years ago, but exempts public schools from such claims. Because of the Democratic super-majorities in both houses of California, there is no way to stop the passage of the bill.

As Valerie Schmalz wrote in Catholic San Francisco:

The California state Senate narrowly approved a waiver of the statute of limitations for child sex abuse damage lawsuits – a bill that could have a devastating effect on nonprofits including Catholic Charities and Catholic schools while exempting public employers. The legislation, SB 131, would force private schools to defend claims that may be 40 years old but forbid victims from suing any public school for abuse that may have occurred before 2009, the California Council of Nonprofit Organizations said.

She quoted Ned Doleisi, executive director of the California Catholic Conference, adding, "To add insult to injury, SB 131 even protects the actual abuser from being sued – the only claims that are revived are against private employers and nonprofit organizations.”

Of course, I see absolutely no problem here. After all, good union public school teachers are never involved with abuse...

The correct term is democrat super-majority; not democratic super-majority. The last thing on earth these people are is democratic.

In public schools only the hot young female teachers enjoy special private health classes with young teenage male students.

Not good. Sounds like the teachers' union got involved.

title of the article sounds good.. when i read it, i thought, “cool, now the ABUSER will actually have to pay” that’s how it should be.. then the more i read into the article, the more angry it makes me- it even specifically protects the (public school) abuser. wrong on so many levels.

ever watch the threads about female teachers who abuse boys, and the subsequent comments of "guilty!" or "not guilty!"

there's always the indignant females that get on and try to chastise us for those comments, but if you follow outcomes, we probably between 95-99% accurate- the "not guilty" teachers barely get a slap on the wrist. it's not us guys being sexist, we're being realists.

Take it to court.

There is no legal basis for exempting public schools.

If this passes, private schools should file a 14th amendment claim in federal court for both due process and equal protection clause violations.

It is a direct gift to unions, but did they purposely exempt non-public schools just because they can?
Does this mean that if a boy claims he is really a girl to be able to get into the girls bathroom (new transgender law) and molests a girl, no one is at fault?

Catholic school have been a thorn in the side of the public school system for many years. This is a chance to rid themselves of the Catholic school system for good.

Is there really anyone left who was molested forty years ago who has not come forward? It’s nice to be able to blame someone who’s dead and cannot defend themselves. My heart absolutely goes out to those legitimately victimized. But there are also those who weren’t abused who jumped on the bandwagon and said “me too!” just for the cash. It’s amazing, you can’t or don’t usually sue if you’re molested by a relative. Now by a public school employee either.

Really, the only solution I can see is what the Egyptians are doing. (And in Turkey, Bulgaria and Brazil; I think a few more are percolating.) When layers of government are being run by utterly corrupt immoral power mad psychopaths, elections are rife with criminal fraud, and millions of gov employees who although powerful are not even elected so there is not even the pretense of trying to get rid of them, what other choices do we have to turn this around?

also there is a devastating suit in LA because a hunch of kids at one school were fed sperm cookies by a teacher and I think a bunch of other things.

This will come in over 100 million.

If the LSA school district was a private business it would have folded up years ago.

The pols want to make the school districts exempt so that they keep bennies going to the teachers and keep schools opened which should be closed and merged.

Nobody is denying that the good looking females teachers get a pass on this. Our contention is that it IS sexist and the epitome of hypocrisy to destroy a male teachers life over the same thing a female teacher gets a pass at because *boys will be boys* and she was *hot*, and *where was she when I was a teen*.

What's wrong for the male teacher/female student is also wrong for the female teacher and male student.

Immorality is immorality and abuse of power is abuse of power. Both are wrong and both should be treated the same.
