() -American scouts failed to get the help they asked for from victims of sexual violence, which the organization managed to pay nearly $ 2.7 billion that could have led to bankruptcy, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday. here based on the results of the initial counting of votes.

According to the newspaper, the proposed solution to 82,200 allegations of child sexual abuse was supported by just over 73 per cent of voters, less than the 75 per cent targeted by the Boy Scouts.

Nearly 54,000 survivors voted, the report said, citing a lawsuit filed Tuesday and saying the current account is not final and is the first of several steps on the way for the Boy Scouts to get out of bankruptcy.

In February 2020, when several U.S. states passed laws that allowed defendants to sue on charges over decades ago, scouts were swept away after a flood of sexual harassment allegations. reut.rs/3JID2bO has filed for bankruptcy.

These plaintiffs are now the creditors of the organization, so they must sign any plans for restructuring and exit from bankruptcy. Representatives of some of the victims have previously tried to build larger settlements.

Rich Scouts and the plaintiff’s attorneys did not immediately respond to a “comment request.”

Rich Scouts apologized and said the organization was committed to fulfilling its “social and moral responsibility to pay fair compensation to survivors.”

As negotiations on the deal dragged on, Boy Scouts attorneys warned that the assets should begin to be sold, otherwise the offense would be used to cover plaintiffs and pay legal fees.
