    • Yeah. This is where the tracks run into the ditch for me, in terms of following along. Local charters or Local Councils? Why don't LCs just do that now and be done with it? "We're separate, are fine without you and will deal with our own business as we see fit. Keep your Chapter 11, intellectual property, HABs and settlement trust contribution suggestions to yourself. See ya if we see ya. Don't if we don't." From what I've read here, which has been fairly detailed, it doesn't seem what you're saying is accurate, unless I've misunderstood you and them, mainly CS on the charter discussion.
    • It's called a "kick-back".  Choose us to be your lawyers and we will give you 10% of our fees.  ... Of course, we'll make sure our fee is at least 20% higher than other clients.  Thus, you both get richer thru the kickback. We had a local place give a box of stakes if you chose them to replace your car's windshield.  Very popular place ... until the insurance companies succeeded pointing out they were being billed well above the value of the stakes.  I think courts got involved and agreed that the insurance company did not need to pay.
    • Simple fact is local charters can function without BSA.  They can keep using the same program.  Slightly change.  Or offer a more general youth oriented, outdoor leadership experience program.  Councils can keep serving the "scouting purpose" relatively easily without BSA national.    
    • I get what you're saying: "Big fees by all." But, TCC counsel represents the TCC who are the official representatives of all claimants before the court. They are not the individual claimants' attorneys. I'm not exactly sure, but might you be mixing up the chosen counsel hired by the US Trustee-appointed Official Tort Claimants Committee with the Coalition folks, TK, other state attorneys or just lumping them all together. If the latter, the individual claimant attorneys have yet to get paid and certainly are not getting paid by the court. On the TCC firm, they have already committed to returning 10% of their fee into the Settlement Trust. That may not amount to "the goodness of their heart," but I've not seen any other firm billing the estate pony up like that. Dat's all I got on this one.
    • I accidentally tripped into a billing.  I should have figured all the groups legal fees would be visible.   Here is a TCC vendor bill.   https://casedocs.omniagentsolutions.com/cmsvol2/pub_47373/884358_2487.pdf Many more "Fee Applications" can be found by typing "fee application" into this web site: https://cases.omniagentsolutions.com/documents?clientid=CsgAAncz%2B6Yclmvv9%2Fq5CGybTGevZSjdVimQq9zQutqmTPHesk4PZDyfOOLxIiIwZjXomPlMZCo%3D&tagid=1153
