Wednesday marked the start of a one-year litigation window in New York allowing people to file civil lawsuits that had previously been barred by the state`s statute of limitations, which was one of the nation`s most restrictive before lawmakers relaxed it this year.

The Catholic Church, the Boy Scouts of America, public school districts and possibly even deceased financier Jeffrey Epstein are among the likely targets.
