The Act creates a new civil cause of action against human traffickers. It allows both victims and the Attorney General to sue traffickers and those benefitting financially from human trafficking for damages and reasonable attorney’s fees. The plaintiffs can file their lawsuit within ten years after the cause of action arose or, if the victim was a minor at the time of the violation, within ten years after the victim turned eighteen-years-old.
