The Coalition of Abused Scouts for Justice
The Coalition of Abused Scouts for Justice was formed with two common goals: ensuring fair and equitable treatment for abuse survivors; and establishing the largest possible compensation fund for survivors, to be distributed as expeditiously as possible.Benefits of The Plan Survivor Stories
Weekly Coalition Updates
Every Tuesday, we update the Coalition on the progress of the case, and discuss the Plan, its benefits for survivors, and answer questions from survivors just like you.
Between now and December 28, 2021,
survivors will be able to vote on the broadly supported reorganization Plan, which is expected to grow to include settlements with additional chartered and sponsoring organizations, insurers, and other third parties, further increasing the size of this multi-billion-dollar settlement.
The only other path for survivors likely involves years of litigation and significant risk that survivors will receive much less than they are assured of receiving under the Plan.
In the Coalition’s view, the settlements in the Plan will result in meaningful distributions of over a billion dollars in value (likely more) to survivors following confirmation, without lengthy, expensive, and harmful litigation of individual abuse claims.
Representatives of approximately 70,000 survivors support the reorganization Plan proposed and negotiated between the BSA and survivor representatives, the Coalition, and the Future Claims Representative. The Plan represents the only assured path to recover and pay billions of dollars to survivors of sexual abuse in the Boy Scouts of America’s programs, regardless of whether the abuse took place beyond the statute of limitations in the state where you lived at the time.
