  1. There may be hope. New York Senator Gillibrand introduced a bill Wednesday that would encourage states through incentives to end the statute of limitations for criminal prosecutions and civil suits involving childhood sexual abuse. The bill would provide states with a 5% boost in federal grant awards for training and law enforcement and prosecutors in handling child sexual abuse cases. Let’s hope this bill passes. Don’t have a lot of faith in Congress, or the White House right now. But hope springs eternal.
  2. That's absolutely the LDS' view. https://casedocs.omniagentsolutions.com/cmsvol2/pub_47373/82a47dab-b75d-43b7-ae01-00b6dc8a17b0_3263.pdf You would think that an organization, especially a “church”, would feel some sort of moral obligation to do whatever they need to do to help victims who were under their care. Regardless if they are forced by the court to do so. Very disappointed in my church
  3. There aren’t many things in this world more unlikeable than insurance companies... (Deleted)
  4. This is what I have been feeling for the last several weeks. I think we were used by almost everyone. Looks like it has turned into a finger pointing exercise and every man for himself situation. Especially because I wasn’t told about the SOL when I signed up.... .01% is not worth it, neither is $3500. I get the feeling BSA wishes it had never gone this route, not that it had much choice but I don’t think they ever dreamed there were 84,000 cases out there.
  5. I have been reading these posts with great interest.... I still don’t understand how I, living in a closed state, have any incentive to vote for this plan. Yes, I know there is the $3500 option or the .01% I could possibly receive from any determination from the court appointed trustee which could be about $1500.00 minus the 40% lawyer cut. I have spent tons more than that on counseling.... and basically trying to keep myself together. I still don’t think this was helpful in any way or worth digging up the horrific memories. I realize that money won’t make it all better but finally seeing
  6. I just found out I live in a SOL state which basically means I went through all this for nothing. Why is it to my advantage to vote for the plan? Seems like everyone wins but me... BSA, Insurance Companies, Attorneys, Local Councils and Chartered Organizations will all be ok while I still get to go through therapy. Nothing seems to change with this nightmare, I finally thought that something good could come out of it....guess not. For me this was not worth it.
  7. I am having trouble finding the table that they reference tonight regarding the different states statutes of limitations. They said all the states were grouped into 5 tiers. Best to worst. I can’t seem to find that table...any help?
  8. Wow, I could get whiplash with all of the back and forth in this case. It's amazing to me that after 1.5 years of this case, there is so much still up in the air. Looks like the only winners will be lawyers. Sad.
  9. That is interesting. In my case, the LDS Church selected all the leaders and in my opinion was more protective of my abuser than BSA. I think the LDS Church definitely needs to step up. I emailed my attorney to see how I could help.... but I didn’t get any response. I know, he probably doesn’t need my help. But my question is will Chartered Organizations only be responsible for cases where they were involved or will they put money into the pot for everyone?
  10. I made the mistake of letting my wife read my POC. It was the only way I could bring myself to give details on my experience. I couldn’t speak the words but having them written down was supposed to be easier. It was a little horrifying, part of the fun I have been having dealing with all the reemergence of memories. Pure hell.
  11. So I hope I am understanding this complex case.... Ballpark timing... 2 months to vote and approve BSA deal After that, about 6 months to deal with insurance companies and any Chartered Organizations. Then the court appointed trustee will review each case and determine compensation...that could take a really long time... so we are 12 - 18 months away from any conclusion? Is that possible?
  12. Oh of course, I am willing to wait for a long time if it means a fair settlement and some changes at BSA but it just seems like things move so slowly.
  13. Is it just me or is this dragging on and on? The next court date not until July 21st? Good grief, the attorneys are making a fortune by prolonging this. Surely there can be something more done than having a hearing every 45 days.
