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. This is the official website for the chapter 11 cases.
