Duncan Firm, with offices in Little Rock, AR, Los Angeles, CA and New York City, is accepting members of the Boys Scouts of America (BSA) seeking damages for personal injury expenses and other losses linked to a sexual abuse-related case dating back to 1965. In California, we are also accepting clients that may have also been physically abused.
The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is one of the largest youth organizations in the United States with approximately 2.3 million youth participants and 1 million adult volunteers. Once considered a reputable organization with high moral standards, supporters were surprised to learn that, on February 18, 2020, BSA filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection due to sexual abuse lawsuits from over 10,000 abuse victims.
The case is Boy Scouts of America, 20-10343, U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.
According to Patrick, Boyle (1991). "Scouts Honor". The Washington Times, J.L. Tarr, a US Chief Scout Executive in the 1980s, was quoted in an article regarding sexual assault cases against Scout leaders across all 50 states: "That's been an issue since the Boy Scouts began." And he is right. On October 19, 2012, the Boy Scouts of America were forced by court order to release over 20,000 pages of documentation on 1,200 alleged child sexual abuse cases within the organization from between 1965 and 1985. Legal claims against BSA for such matters continue to the present day.
Regardless of which Scouting program you or your loved one was in, you are a survivor and have probably been hiding it for decades. It’s vital that you work privately with us because we aim to protect future generations and our youth from life-altering situations such as the one that BSA has so wrongly caused.
