More than 90,000 people have come forward with sex-abuse claims against the Boy Scouts of America, describing a decades-long accumulation of assaults at the hands of scout leaders across the nation. The national organization began documenting claims of abuse since 1935 and did nothing to prevent known predators year after year from continuing to assault victims. While the Boy Scouts count some 2.2 million current members, those numbers have been on the decline from a peak of around five million in the 1970s. The national organization has more than $1 billion in assets, according to its bankruptcy filing as the Boy Scouts seek to reorganize and continue operations while establishing a Victim Compensation Fund. Scores of insurance policies have been identified which are expected to provide hundreds of millions of dollars to victims. The organization also has a network of local Boy Scouts councils that own camps and other properties across the country which may voluntarily participate in Mediations to avoid separate litigation against them. OMNI Claims Administration has been confirmed by the Court and Trustee to analyze the proof of claims and propose metrics for evaluating potential awards once the total assets are identified and secured. This equitable process involves many factors that may take years to resolve.
