The Boy Scouts of America filed for bankruptcy in February of this year due to hundreds of sexual abuse lawsuits against them. The bankruptcy court recently put in place a hard deadline of November 16, 2020, for survivors wishing to make a claim.
Victims of sexual abuse by an adult authority figure while in the Boy Scouts, no matter how long ago, may be entitled to financial compensation. For decades, the Boy Scouts compounded this problem by maintaining secret files documenting the sexual misconduct of scout leaders without taking action. Reports document over 12,000 victims of sexual assault dating as far back as 1965. It is believed there are many more victims who have not yet come forward to report their story of abuse.
