  1. Another possibility is the weather. They were calling for winter storms that could affect safe travel/driving in Delaware.
  2. ?? Wouldn't that have been part of the vetting process? Also, I seem to recall something about [some group--possibly lawyers?] wanting the BSA to release its current & historic rosters.
  3. @ThenNow It's good to see, um, read, you again. I've missed your colorful commentary and various pop culture/film/literary references!
  4. https://www.nj.com/news/2021/11/2-nj-boy-scout-councils-selling-camps-to-pay-for-sexual-abuse-settlements.html Patriots Path Council is selling Sabattis, their high adventure camp, and Jersey Shore Council is also selling some property.
  5. If they are making sure DE&I is truly "ingrained at every level," is the MB truly needed? I wonder if they will also add explicit DE&I requirements for each rank from Cub up through Eagle?
  6. So, if I read this right, John Lucas says the NJ & PA councils should be giving over 70% of their total assets? Will that leave them with 2 years' worth of operating funds? (I thought that was part of it.) I would be surprised if most non-profits could survive after giving that much. There are many opinions about what percentage of assets should be contributed. Northern New Jersey Council's proposed contribution is over 30% of their total net assets. For those who say LCs should give 'til it hurts, I'm willing to bet it's gonna hurt.
  7. Perhaps the Dread Pirate Roberts is the one to untie the Gordian knot, and since it has been stated the the judge is the person to do the untying, then he would need to be Judge Dredd Pirate Roberts. 😉
  8. egads! I could imagine someone losing a degree of sanity simply from having to complete all of those test and scales and inventories - nevermind being made to think about how this is making you feel or that is making you react. For me, this whole bankruptcy process has felt like it's been dragging on and on and on - and I am not a claimant. I'm glad that you have a therapist and that your therapist wants to take the time to get a good assessment of how you are doing. (I'm not so glad to hear that you are in less-than-stellar shape.) So, @ThenNow - to you and all the other surv
  9. I'm pages behind on the ch.11 thread, and I haven't had my coffee yet, so please forgive me if I sound dense. It sounds like the mods are trying to make a place for the more emotionally-charged topics of discussion and speculations about what may happen (e.g. CO relations) here while leaving ch.11 for the "cold hard facts" of the bankruptcy case. So, if it's about: -LC assets (stated numbers, dollar amounts, property values) -LC contributions (i.e. announcements about they are contributing and how they plan to raise the funds - not our estimations of what they should or might c
  10. This just in from Patriots' Path Council: The case is reaching a critical juncture and it is clear that Patriots’ Path Council will be required to make a significant contribution to the settlement trust. It is likely that this settlement contribution will be a blend of cash and property. Our council has been working diligently for almost two years through special committees and our Executive Board to ensure that we are best positioned to continue serving youth, families and communities in northern and central New Jersey. Because of confidentiality requirements, we cannot at this time prov
  11. (raising hand from the back of the room) So, my brain feels like teflon when it comes to some of this... What is supposed to be disclosed at the upcoming disclosure hearing and why is it such a Big Deal? I have no background in law or financial stuff (like bankruptcy) or insurance. I'm trying to follow what is going on, but I get so confused.
  12. This just in from Greater Hudson Valley Council (before bankruptcy it was 2 councils - Hudson Valley and Westchester-Putnam): "Greater Hudson Valley Council will contribute $6,367,834.84 to the Victims Trust Fund which will be used to compensate anyone that was victimized in the past. This non-negotiable number reflects the roughly 550+ cases from within our Council, in its various forms, going back to the 1950s. The majority of the cases took place prior to the 1990s. We take our obligation to the victims seriously as even a single case of abuse is one too many. To fulfill this comm
  13. This also assumes that 100% of those claims would be found to be "valid." It is possible that some claimants don't/won't/can't provide enough details to validate the claim; it is possible that some claimants are, well, lying*; it is possible that some of the proofs of claim will be thrown out because the lawyer's signature was photocopied... *As horrible as it is to be an abuse survivor, it is unconscionable to be a False Abuse Victim, i.e. someone who pretends he was abused so he can collect money. I believe that there are possibly/probably some claims (of the 82,000) that fall into th
