SOL: +8 years from majority, or +3  years from liberal discovery. Wyo. Stat. § 1-3-105 (b)(i)-(ii).  (I AM STILL UNSURE IF THIS APPLIES VS NON PERPS OR NOT). HARD TO FIND CASE LAW, WOKRING ON IT.)

1. Wyo. Stat. § 1-3-105 (b)  Notwithstanding subsection (a) of this section, a civil action based upon sexual assault as defined by W.S. 6-2-301(a)(v) against a minor may be brought within the later of: (i)  Eight (8) years after the minor’s eighteenth birthday; or (ii)  Three (3) years after the discovery.


1. Majority. Yes, 18

a. Wyo. Stat. Ann. § 1-3-114 (2010) (“If a person entitled to bring any action except for an action arising from error or omission in the rendering of licensed or certified professional or health care services or for a penalty or forfeiture, is, at the time the cause of action accrues, a minor or subject to any other legal disability, the person may bring the action within three (3) years after the disability is None or within any other statutory period of limitation, whichever is greater.”)

2. Discovery, yes, liberal/causal.

a. McCreary v. Weast, 971 P.2d 974, 981, 1999 Wyo. LEXIS 11, 18 (Wyo. 1999) (“If the trial court or the jury is satisfied that psychic trauma has been proximately caused by a sexual assault upon a minor, and medical science could not recognize that trauma, or its final consequences could not be forecast, the period of limitations described in the statute does not begin to run until the damage is identified. The factual issue then to be resolved is whether a party…discovered or in the exercise of reasonable diligence should have discovered the psychic trauma. That factual resolution would establish the date on which the statute of limitations begins to run for purposes of a claim for sexual assault against a minor.”)

b. McCreary v. Weast, 971 P.2d 974, 979, 1999 Wyo. LEXIS 11, 11-12 (Wyo. 1999) (“Under the discovery rule as adopted in Wyoming, the statute of limitations will typically run from the date of the incident. The discovery rule can have the effect, however, of delaying the accrual of the cause of action in cases in which the injury or damage is not immediately apparent. We have said specifically that, “a tort is not complete and actionable until all the elements, duty, breach, proximate cause, and damage, are present. Davis v. City of Casper, 710 P.2d 827, 829 (Wyo. 1985). This serves to balance the equities in latent injury cases when the injured party would be barred from bringing an action only because that person was unaware of the injury.”)


Boggs v. State, 484 P.2d 711, 714, 1971 Wyo. LEXIS 216, 10 (Wyo. 1971) (“Wyoming has no statute of limitations as to the commencement of criminal proceedings.”)
