What Does Bankruptcy Mean for Boy Scout Abuse Survivors?

As lawsuits over the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) enabling and covering up decades of sexual abuse continue to flood the nation’s courts, the organization’s insurers are saying they shouldn’t have to cover claims where the BSA’s own records show the organization failed to warn parents and protect children. Consequently, the BSA continues to consider bankruptcy as an option to handle mounting sexual misconduct and abuse claims. However, this begs the question of what this means for abuse survivors. 

Since its incorporation in 1910, more than 110 million people have participated in BSA’s youth programs. Now, the organization is facing a staggering number of lawsuits alleging that BSA covered up sexual misconduct by employees and volunteers since at least the 1960s.
