Final filing deadline set for Madison Square Boys & Girls Club bankruptcy

On Behalf of | Aug 15, 2022 | Boys & Girls Club

All Sexual Abuse Claims Must be Filed by November 10, 2022 or Be Barred Forever

A federal bankruptcy court judge has ordered all sexual abuse claims against the 138-year old Madison Square Boys & Girls Club in New York City to be filed no later than November 10, 2022.  The ruling comes after the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club, a founding member of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, filed for Chapter 11 protection due to the nearly 150 sexual abuse lawsuits filed against it.

The November 10 date is referred to as a “bar date” by the Bankruptcy Court because the Madison Square Club will be forever immune from suit in any sexual abuse claim not filed by that date.  Survivors will never again have any chance for accountability after November 10, so it is critically important that you contact a lawyer today if you were harmed by an employee or volunteer in the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club.  This also applies anyone sexually abused as an adult and the estates of deceased victims.
