Thousands of children who participated in the Boy Scouts of America over the years have been sexually abused by predators occupying positions of trust within the organization. Many survivors are now grown men just coming to terms with what happened to them when they were Boy Scouts. Often, the physical and emotional trauma from childhood sexual abuse is too difficult and confusing for a young victim to handle, so memories get repressed for years. If you have been abused as a Boy Scout, know that you are not alone, and attorneys at The Blake Horwitz Law Firm are here to help.
Over the last few years, the Boy Scouts have faced so many lawsuits for sexual abuse within their ranks that they recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in February 2020 to specifically compensate victims of childhood sexual abuse. The court overseeing the Boy Scout’s bankruptcy has set a deadline of November 11th, 2020, for victims of childhood sexual abuse to file suit against the Boy Scouts.
