A new New York law that goes into effect Thursday will temporarily waive the deadline for victims of sexual abuse to file lawsuits, allowing them to file lawsuits against those who hurt them years ago. The Adult Survivors Act creates a one-year window for victims of abuse decades ago to file a claim. CBS News legal contributor Jessica Levinson and Safe Horizons CEO Liz Roberts joined CBS News to discuss the law.
