  1. Bring on the next $130k+. https://casedocs.omniagentsolutions.com/cmsvol2/pub_47373/1d0f8ba2-2a17-4ee9-871d-9dd1dd4ce502_9064.pdf Whoops! The tried to slide #18 on by me. 78 grand, give or take. https://casedocs.omniagentsolutions.com/cmsvol2/pub_47373/969cd108-c6da-4241-9ed3-0f26b65894c9_9063.pdf I know there are some sophisticated consultants among us. Care to translate this? Oh, wait! I think that first sentence was lifted from my job description when I was raising teenagers. I knew it looked strangely familiar. About Ankura Ankura Consulting Group, LLC is an in
  2. I don't get it, either. The argument is the bankruptcy code allows for payment/reimbursement based on a "substantial contribution" to the deal leading to the plan or some such. The US Trustee's comment back when they tried this the first time was pretty much, "Um, this case isn't close to over. How can we know if someone made a substantial contribution until a plan is approved?" As my gramps would say if you burped, "Bring it up later and we'll vote on it." This is nothing more than parties being unofficially officially appointed as a fiduciary so they can get paid from the estate. Fiduciary t
  3. If the REI bag proves less than optimal, I'll check this one out. Thank you!
  4. Another beauty from the Certain Insurers' objection. Quoting: $24.5 Million Potentially Diverted from Abuse Claimants Solely for the Benefit of Plaintiffs’ Lawyers Who Represent Them 90. In connection with the RSA, the Coalition and the Debtors requested that the Court approve payments of $950,000 per month throughout the case and additional fees up to $10.5 million for professionals that Coalition plaintiffs’ lawyers hired on behalf of the Coalition without any showing of a “substantial contribution.” The Court denied that request, finding that it would harm the Abuse Claimants:
  5. Question for the wise. In reading the objection located on the docket via the link below, I found several interesting assertions. I haven't searched the TDP/IR processes to confirm all of them. I claim Monday malaise. In the meantime, anyone know the source of this assertion by the "Certain Insurers"? How does one come by that "private confidential information" to build one's case? There are several things I seek and I'd be happy to tell BSA "what I want, what I really really want." (Name that tune but don't deviate too far into a pop culture fest.) Sharing is care and I hope this is true.
  6. My understanding is a fee request that lands on the docket is an official, "Please ma'am, I want some more" seeking porridge from the slop bucket. Quoting: Perhaps the most significant fact about a Creditors’ Committee is that it may, with Bankruptcy Court approval, retain professionals including attorneys and accountants to represent the interest of unsecured creditors, and these professionals may be paid by the Debtor’s bankruptcy estate. 11 U.S.C. §1103(a) and §330(a)(1). Attorneys can assist a Creditors Committee with obtaining information necessary to make decisions and recommenda
  7. The Scouters on this forum? Jk. I'm not sure of the membership, but this explains some of the elements. Effectively, the Debtors owe them cash and are holding no gold watches, artwork, real property or other things of value against which they can move to satisfy the indebtedness. I reserve the right to be wrong, per usual. https://www.mgwl.com/blog/what-you-should-know-about-ch-11-unsecured-creditors-committees/
  8. Notice and agenda for Wed's hearing at 10ET. The $how must go on. (See above post.) https://casedocs.omniagentsolutions.com/cmsvol2/pub_47373/deb3c636-6cf0-4dd4-a3e5-ca89945008b4_9040.pdf
  9. Okay. I know who these folks are and what they do, but does anyone know how they integrate with all the other professionals working this cash cow? 23rd Monthly Fee Application. WooHoo! $115,197 with a 20% holdback. This month's payday is $92,157.60. (By the way, that's the moolah kind and not the peanut and caramel log variety from our childhood.) https://casedocs.omniagentsolutions.com/cmsvol2/pub_47373/566b1605-4d4e-42d4-a5ce-7f6e1584c93c_9039.pdf https://www.alixpartners.com
  10. Amen to all that with a footnote. The Youth Protection Committee called for in the new YP terms is a critical component in the go forward world of BSA YP. I think it's not only critical to the BSA, but important as a model for other organizations. Why? Because at least half of its members must be BSA abuse survivors. They will have a hand in every aspect and phase of BSA YP. I'm hoping and praying that the members put forth by the TCC and SWG will be tenacious, thoughtful, capable, detail-oriented and united in their voice. If this all doesn't come tumbling down like so many Jenga towers, watc
  11. Check under your bed and let me know, if you would please. I figure either that or you use it as a pillow.
  12. Thank you, TCC. This was very helpful. Of course, I have 9.62 additional questions, while scratching 18.38 of them off the list.
  13. I’m sorry, as well. I’m working on my effort to get back to some semblance of shape. Decided to work on balance, core strength and some old people stretching drills I found online. Another gear question. I have my old, well taken care (as in, little used) Osprey Atmos 50 and my youngest son appears to have left his 35 here. I am wondering about a day pack. I’ve heard several of you talk about working with the full gear/pack setup, but am taking all comers on thoughts and suggestions. I don’t mind spending money on this and was about ready to order one of the Osprey day packs. Several rat
  14. Final Voting Report for Class 8 Claimants - Accept/Reject by Local Council. (This is the full vote not the re-vote, to be clear.) 9032.pdf
  15. It would be fun to post photos, if that is permitted.
  16. I don't believe that's the choice. If the Plan is not confirmed, there is always the dicey BSA only (Toggle) Plan. As many have said, they can't be forced into a 7 and would never choose it.
  17. Very cool. I dream of a Goshawk in full view one day, F-22 Raptoring its way through the woods. The Harris's Hawks we worked with in Scotland were incredible. A female Barred fought off a Raccoon approaching her nest and that was a dandy. They have my favorite call, as well. Sound like monkeys when they're all worked up.
  18. I'm not sure that's accurate. It's a number that can be compared to other numbers which makes it relative, but not subjective. In relative terms, when you consider the overall exposure of the insurance carriers, the awards given in other child sexual abuse settlements and bankruptcies, and the roughly $33,000 per claimant in this case, it is grossly underfunded. It has to be seen in context. I believe that is the point. No? It's like saying, "You gave the neighbor kid how much to mow the backyard? $500? That's ridiculous! My brother pays his guy $25!" What is not stated is the man's "backyard"
  19. It's a Scouter-led forum. Congratulations! You earned your badge. That's so funny. I am the same. Got it from my dad. He was utterly fascinated and all six of his kids and their offspring are, as well. Now, my wife even does it. All the time.
  20. Asking to better understand the above paragraph. Same. Before I wade in, it would be good to have clarification of what the attorney sad. I see nothing that creates that limitation.
  21. John Lucas of PSZJ and Dr. Kennedy are releasing a video, likely tomorrow, walking through the three paths to seek an award. That made my day. Now I can stop with the Beautiful Mind decorations in my office. Maybe.
  22. Are there any revelations on why there was contention over one vs. the 'tother?
