Boy Scouts Bankruptcy

Boy Scouts Bankruptcy

In this Thursday, Feb. 13, 2020, photo, James Kretschmer holds photographs of himself at age 11 and 12 during an interview in Houston. The Boy Scouts of America has filed for bankruptcy protection as it faces a barrage of new sex-abuse lawsuits. The filing Tuesday, Feb. 18, in Wilmington, Del., is an attempt to work out a potentially mammoth compensation plan for abuse victims that will allow the 110-year-old organization to carry on. Kretschmer of Houston, among the many men suing for alleged abuse, says he was molested by a Scout leader over several months in the mid-1970s in the Spokane, Washington, area. (AP Photo/David J.
