Important Notice Regarding Boy Scouts Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
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 this date, a survivor could be denied any sort of recovery from the Boy Scouts of America.
ALL CLAIMS MUST BE FILED BY NOVEMBER 16, 2020.
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.
