NJ Assembly Judiciary Committee Passes Civil Rape Shield Bill

Per The New Jersey Law Journal:

"The Assembly Judiciary Committee on Monday recommended passage of a bill that would expand the Rape Shield Law to include civil actions...The bill, A-101, would require that a defendant in a civil case establish specific facts showing good cause for seeking discovery of information concerning the plaintiff's sexual conduct with persons other than the defendant, and also showing that the information sought is relevant to the subject matter of the action and reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence."
