Alito Pauses $2.46B Boy Scouts Abuse Settlement

More than 80,000 men have reported that they were sexually abused as children during their time as members of the Boy Scouts of America.

That's serious.

The organization is currently facing a nearly two-and-a-half BILLION-dollar lawsuit over the allegations.

All it took was one appeal request from the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) for the Supreme Court to pause it all.

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito has officially paused the settlement saying that further movement is “pending further order of the undesigned or of the Court.”

According to Reuters, the BSA organization understands that a lengthy delay could “inflict severe harm on both the Scouting movement and Scouting-abuse survivors,” and that its leaders hope the SCOTUS’ decision is quick.

However, many of the victims who have filed claims are understandably furious over the decision of Alito.

Those victims include Doug Kennedy, who told Reuters that the decision to pause was “horrible.”
“There was finally a light at the end of the tunnel, and now this has been yanked away from them,” Kennedy said.

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the biggest organizations for children in this country.

Its leaders have a legal and moral responsibility to PROTECT the members of the organization and ensure their safety.

If they seriously have trouble taking accountability when more than 80,000 have stepped forward saying they were sexually abused, there’s something wrong here.

The Boy Scouts of America needs to do what is right.

If the organization cannot commit to making up for what happened and ensuring their policies are not correct moving forward, maybe there should not be an organization at all.

What do you think should happen with the Boy Scouts of America lawsuit?
