As reported by the Washington Post Sept. 11, 2019:
Lawsuits. Possible bankruptcy. Declining numbers. Is there a future for the Boy Scouts?
As the new school year begins, Bostian and Scout leaders across the country are trying to safeguard the future of an organization facing unprecedented threats from several corners.
Looming over the Boy Scouts are lawsuits that threaten to tarnish its image, reports of a potential bankruptcy and a struggle to define what it means to be a Scout today. Most recently, a group of lawyers claimed to have uncovered hundreds of previously unreported cases of sexual abuse at the nearly 110-year-old organization.
Sauder Schelkopf has a nationally recognized sexual misconduct litigation practice. Our former prosecutors have extensive experience representing victims of all ages. Sauder Schelkopf, and co-counsel, recently reached a $215 million settlement on behalf of female patients of Dr. George Tyndall, a gynecologist at the University of Southern California accused of sexual misconduct since the 1990s. We currently represent survivors of clergy sexual abuse in dioceses throughout the country. We have a class action lawsuit pending on behalf of males who were victims of sexual misconduct by Dr. Richard Strauss, the Ohio State team doctor, while they were students and student-athletes at Ohio State University.
