• There are 82,209 Child Sex Abuse Survivors that are Claimants.

• The Boy Scouts will pay less than 10% ($219 Million) of the $2.46 Billion bankruptcy plan. The rest will be paid by insurance companies and Councils.

• The Boy Scouts will pay more to their attorneys (>$300 Million) than to the Survivors ($219 Million).

On February 18, 2020 (the "Petition Date"), the national organization of the Boy Scouts of America (the “BSA”) and Delaware BSA, LLC (collectively, the “Debtors”) filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to achieve two key objectives: equitably compensate victims who were harmed during their time in Scouting and continue to carry out Scouting's mission for years to come. No local councils or other entities are included as Debtors in these cases.
