Founded in 1910, the Boy Scouts’ association initially had a mission to “prepare young people for ‘correct’ moral and ethical choices and educate them to be honest citizens.”
Boy Scouts of America Drama. An organization based in Irving, Texas, has sought legal protection from being liquidated based on the creation of a compensation fund for Scouts who have been sexually harassed. The number of lawsuits increased significantly from 275 to 82.5 thousand. At the pending trial, the court issued a decision to cross-examine key witnesses without delay.
In the next installment of the drama The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) fighting to survive in the ongoing trial in Dover, Delaware, a court on Sept. 21 ruled that key witnesses would be heard immediately.
According to the AP, Judge Laura Selber Silverstein did not agree to postpone hearings scheduled for that day a month earlier, which several influential contributors requested, citing, among other things, the celebration of the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur (September 15-16).
The lawsuits amounted to $787 million
An Irving, Texas-based organization sued in February 2020 to seek legal protection in the face of its liquidation based on the creation of a compensation fund for Scouts who have been sexually harassed. The number of lawsuits increased significantly from 275 to 82.5 thousand. On November 16, 2020 (last day for submission of documents) this is probably due to the ease of electronic submission thanks to the simple form that is still available on the BSA website today.
Currently, a battle is taking place in court over the amount of compensation for the victims. According to the Associated Press, up to $787 million is being provided by the Hartford Insurance Company, which is associated with the Mormon Church. Mormons want to add another $250 million to that.
Also mentioned was the $820 million, which will come from a “common fundraiser”, which includes several thousand churches, community groups and other local sponsors of this organization, which still has about 1.2 million members and which, after the end of the process announces that it will “reorganize” .
They had to prepare for the “correct” moral choices.
The Scout Association, founded in 1910, was initially tasked with “preparing young people for ‘correct’ moral and ethical choices and educating them to be honest citizens.”
The institution was to teach young people respect for others and God, mutual trust, and inculcate civic virtues – as in all forms of Scouting – to teach communication with nature through hiking, camping, and water sports.
Currently, the organization has approximately 2.2 million people. The growing number of lawsuits exhausted her financial resources. Between 2017 and 2019, the group spent more than $150 million on bills and other legal expenses. This forced them to increase fees while the number of members decreased.
