Boy Scouts bankruptcy background
Thousands of sexual abuse survivors have filed litigation across the country accusing Boy Scouts of America of failing to uphold its own values-based ideals and its obligation to protect the boys entrusted to its care. We believe that by covering up abuse, the Boy Scouts allowed abusers to prey on unsuspecting children in alarming numbers, seemingly unchecked by law enforcement.
The Boy Scouts filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy in February 2020 amid child sexual abuse lawsuits. The bankruptcy process can pose complex challenges for survivors seeking to be heard, but we are ready to help guide survivors toward justice and accountability.
The bankruptcy filing and impending claims process allow any survivors nationwide to file a claim against the Boy Scouts of America and their state and local entities. Motley Rice can help you do that.
