What does the Pending BSA Bankruptcy Mean for Survivors of Scout Abuse?
As reported in the Wall Street Journal and other national news sources, the Boy Scouts of America is considering filing for bankruptcy to avoid litigation arising from years of failing to protect boys from being abused by its leaders.
What does this pending bankruptcy mean for survivors of scout abuse?
The attorneys at Noaker Law and James, Vernon & Weeks, P.A. have years of experience representing survivors of BSA abuse. Additionally, we have extensive experience in similar bankruptcies involving catholic dioceses and orders. We can help survivors navigate the legal maze created by this bankruptcy. Bankruptcy can provide an avenue for survivors to receive compensation and a measure of justice outside of the litigation context. Besides monetary compensation, we have been successful in negotiating non-monetary considerations (such as apologies and policy changes) in similar bankruptcies involving catholic dioceses and orders.
