New Rights for Survivors: The Arizona Child Victims Act

Boy Scouts Abuse and Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
If you are a survivor sexual abuse in Boy Scouts in Arizona, we want to help. On February 17, 2020, the Boy Scouts of America announced its filing Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. On May 26, 2020 the bankruptcy court set a claims bar date marking the deadline by which all survivors of child sexual abuse by a BSA volunteer or employee must formally file a claim with the court: November 16, 2020.
After November 16, a survivor could be denied any sort of recovery from the Boy Scouts of America. This complicated and highly nuanced legal tactic is often confusing to people who are not familiar with this type of bankruptcy, and it can prevent survivors of child sexual abuse from pursuing legal action. Please visit our Boy Scouts Bankruptcy FAQ page for more information.
