Bankruptcy Court Issues “Bar Date” Deadline

On May 18, 2020, the bankruptcy court set November 16, 2020, as the “bar date” deadline for abuse survivors to file a claim in the bankruptcy.  This deadline is called a “bar date” because anyone who fails to file a claim by the deadline will likely have their claim against the Boy Scouts forever “barred” and they will likely forfeit any claim they have against the Boy Scouts, including any right to compensation from the Boy Scouts.  The deadline usually applies to anyone who has a claim, even people who come forward late because they were not aware of the deadline.
