Laws not retroactive.

Unless the legeslators in your state wrote retroactive caluse into the changes your case should be settled unger the old laws. It's called EX post facto i think. You can't change a law that effects the people who allready have an action under that law.

I reccomend checking the web to see if the laws are posted for your state.
