States Extend Statute of Limitations for Civil Claims against Boy Scouts

Legislators are working against time to extend the statute of limitations for former Boy Scouts. The bankruptcy settlement with Boy Scouts of America provided that claimants are limited by their respective states' statutes of limitations as of May 31, 2024. Iowa is the most recent state to extend the limitations period, joining  Alabama and Ohio in creating an extended time solely for claimants in the BSA bankruptcy. A similar measure in Indiana failed to pass last year.

The legislation, which retroactively waives the statute of limitations for victims filing a civil claim as part of the Boy Scouts of America bankruptcy settlement, took effect immediately after Gov. Kim Reynolds signed it.
