This program will discuss limitations in existing law and examine innovative ways to bring civil claims against intimate partners in sex abuse cases. Existing law provides a remedy for victims of forced sexual abuse, but options are often limited for victims who are coerced into sexual relationships through nonphysical means. 

This program explores those situations where abusers obtain supposed consent using drugs, lies, grooming tactics, and other forms of manipulation, and seeks to offer two potential avenues for redress. First, we look at an emerging trend in the law that has successfully used the Trafficking Victims Protection Act and RICO against perpetrators who have abused multiple intimate partners. Second, we explore the potential consequence of repealing antiquated state laws known as “anti-heart-balm” statutes.
