The Boy Scouts of America filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy, and in response to the claims of abuse which have been made against them, have created a trust to pay claims of sexual abuse survivors. A recent decision stated that survivors can now file a sexual abuse claim regardless of age or location.
Failure to file by this deadline means you may be barred from filing a claim to recover damages for sexual abuse suffered as a result of (inadequate oversight?) by the Boy Scouts of America and related organizations.
Anyone who suffered abuse as a result of scouting or activities with the Boy Scouts of America or any related organization is eligible to file a claim regardless of age or location.
No. Claims can be filed if an individual suffered sexual abuse by:
Assistant Troop Leaders
General background information, ie. schooling, employment.
