As an update to an earlier post, according to the South Dakota Legislature website, the Governor of South Dakota signed HB 1104 into law on 23 March 2010.

South Dakota is now, officially, a haven for pedophiles and their apologists. I think Mount Rushmore  and the Black Hills just fell off my bucket list.

To refresh your memory, The meat of the statute reads as follows:

Any civil action based on intentional conduct brought by any person for recovery of damages for injury suffered as a result of childhood sexual abuse shall be commenced within three
years of the act alleged to have caused the injury or condition, or three years of the time the victim discovered or reasonably should have discovered that the injury or condition was caused by the act, whichever period expires later. However, no person who has reached the age of forty years may recover damages from any person or entity other than the person who perpetrated the actual act of sexual abuse.
