As the Boy Scouts of America claim filing deadline approaches, Slater Slater Schulman continues to represent and help thousands of sexual abuse survivors who suffered within the Boy Scouts. It is vital that anyone who was sexually abused as a minor while in Scouting meet the November 16, 2020 deadline to file their claim and be eligible for compensation. Unfortunately, after the set date, an individual can no longer file a claim regardless of their reason for missing the deadline. It is important to understand that with the deadline fast approaching, proper representation is crucial for these cases.
In recent months the Boys Scouts of America have faced thousands of lawsuits over sexual abuse against their minor members. In February 2020, the organization filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection after the surge of allegations accumulated, and a Victims Compensation Trust was set up to provide compensation for survivors.
Slater Slater Schulman represents thousands of sexual abuse survivors throughout the country. Managing partner, Adam Slater’s zealous representation of sexual abuse survivors led him to become one of the founding members of an ad hoc bankruptcy committee of unsecured creditors that collectively represents the interests of thousands of survivors of sexual abuse in Scouting.
