U.S. Judge Blocks Boy Scout Sex Abuse Settlement


Listen to this article

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Laurie Selber Silverstein recently ruled that she could not approve all aspects of the Boy Scouts of America’s reorganization plan and its underlying sex abuse settlement to compensate more than 80,000 men who say they were sexually abused as children by troop leaders, reports Reuters.

The plan and settlement would establish a $2.7 billion trust to compensate the survivors. Silverstein approved many aspects of the settlement but wrote she could not support a $250 million settlement between the Boy Scouts and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and could not make determinations related to the Boy Scouts’ insurance coverage. The judge suggested the overall deal would take significant time to rework, writing that the Boy Scouts “have some decisions to make.”
