Boy Scouts Bankruptcy Background
The Boy Scouts of America of failed to uphold its values meant to protect boys entrusted to its care. The widespread pattern of sexual abuse against minors in the BSA has shattered the reputation of an organization that had strived to promote honor and volunteerism for over a century. Further, the covering up of the abuse by the organization allows abusers safety whiling allowing for other boys to face abuse and further pain and suffering. As a result, thousands of Boy Scout abuse survivors have filed litigation against the Boy Scouts of America. We believe that by covering up abuse, the Boy Scouts allowed abusers to prey on unsuspecting children in alarming numbers, seemingly unchecked by law enforcement.
The Boy Scouts filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in February 2020 amid child sexual abuse lawsuits. The youth organization, which celebrated its 110th anniversary February 8, listed liabilities of between $100 million and $500 million. The bankruptcy process can pose complex challenges for survivors seeking to be heard, but we are ready to help guide survivors toward justice and make the Boy Scouts of American face accountability.
