Scouts go bust after flood of abuse cases

19 February 2020 – Times

The Boy Scouts of America is now facing bankruptcy as it becomes inundated with legal battles over thousands of sexual abuse allegations.

Several thousand men are claiming to have been molested by scoutmasters or other leaders decades ago, but are now only able to sue due to recent changes in statute of limitations laws.

The organisation filed for bankruptcy on 18.02.2020 but could ultimately be forced to sell off some of its vast property holdings such as campsites and hiking trails to raise money for a compensation fund.
