BOY SCOUTS CHAPTER 11 BANKRUPTCY Claims BAR Date Order

Document: Boy Scouts Claims Bar Date Order

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.

The Anderson List: BOY SCOUTS Abuse

Document: The Anderson List: Boy Scouts Abuse in New Jersey Report

Document: The Anderson List: Sexual Abuse in the Boy Scouts of America – New York

The names and information contained in these lists include the names of employees or volunteers who have worked for the Boy Scouts of America throughout the United States who have been accused of sexual misconduct. While lawsuits were filed involving many of these alleged perpetrators, the vast majority of the claims against these individuals have been settled or have not been fully evaluated in a civil or criminal court. Accordingly, the allegations should be considered just allegations and should not be considered proved or substantiated in a court of law.

All individuals should be considered innocent until proven guilty. In some situations, the statute of limitations has expired preventing cases from being heard in a court of law. The information contained herein is an attempt to compile information already available to the public including information.
