The Boy Scouts of America has filed for Bankruptcy. If you are a victim of sexual abuse by an adult authority figure while in the Boy Scouts, we can file a claim to obtain financial compensation for the abuse.

As the Boy Scouts of America files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, all currently filed lawsuits against the BSA will be paused. The only relief will be a claim in United States Bankruptcy Court. This will be in Delaware. Developments will move rapidly and therefore time is of the essence for those who want to file claims. In bankruptcy the court will establish a very short time window in which sexual victims must file their claims or they will be forever barred from receiving compensation.

Thousands of Boy Scouts Have Been Victimized by Their Scoutmasters.

Sexual abuse, also referred to as molestation, is undesired sexual behavior by one person upon another. It can happen by using force or by taking advantage of another. Whether force is short or long in duration, or frequent or infrequent, it is called sexual assault.

The reason for the bankruptcy filing can be tracked to a 2010 Portland trial where a 19.9 million dollar verdict was awarded against the Boy Scouts for sexual abuse by a scout leader. The lawsuit forced the release of the B.S.A. perversion files which showed the immense scope of the Boy Scouts’ sexual abuse problem.
