Utah woman to sue LDS Church using California law that helps child sex assault survivors

KJZZ | Wednesday,  October 16, 2019


SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) — Kristy Johnson, now a resident of Utah, is preparing to sue The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints under a newly-passed California law designed to help adults who were sexually assaulted as children.

California Assembly Bill 218 becomes law in 2020.

Unlike Utah law, which allows adults who were victimized as children to sue perpetrators as individuals, the California law also allows victims to sue entities and institutions that covered up the sexual assault or allowed it to happen when they had the power to stop it.


“These places that have purposely covered up, I don’t care who you are, it’s time to pay the price for that,” Johnson said.
