    • From where I sit that there would be a lot of lawyers making a mad dash to the court houses.  Most likely may not be the best for the insurers would it?  If hypothetically 10,000 lawsuits were filed that would be a lot of litigation with jury trials.
    • If you like to give and/give gifts or not they seem to collect us.   After ....... years in scouting a large number have collected me (and some are my husbands)  Now is the time to downsize, but what do I do with these? Have donated most of the patches and neckers to a group that sells them to raise money for camperships, They can't use the other items. And along with my personal items I have boxes of left over items from a business we once had that focused on American wildlife - can you guess what animals we featured? Is there a market anywhere for these items? Thanks for the help.  
    • Not necessarily. It could exit bankruptcy as a "Failed bankruptcy" and simply wait to get sued out of existence. Or, as Kosnoff's wanted, the judge could appoint a person to take over BSA and that person could determine that yes, there is no alternative left but Chapter 7 AND then go after the Local Councils for everything they've got.
    • BSA may not have years. Remember: they kept saying over and over, out of money by July or August. Even with the RSA, the fastest they could get out of bankruptcy was October. This could be a simple one week delay to get a modified RSA put together. This could be no delay at all and they can get to a disclosure statement on August 17. Or this could mean yes years in which case at some point or another (sooner I suspect than later) the cost of the bankruptcy plus declines in membership simply kill BSA.
    • The BSA cannot survive more than a few months (few being poorly defined).  It would have to file Chapter 7 and the local councils would soon follow suit. The legal system is badly broken.
