Judge delays start of hearing on Boy Scouts bankruptcy plan
DOVER, Del. (AP) — The judge presiding over the Boy Scouts of America bankruptcy has delayed the start of a trial to determine whether the BSA reorganization plan should be upheld after a settlement with the official committee representing more than 80,000 men who say that they were molested as children by scout leaders and others resulted in several new provisions of the plan.
During a three-hour hearing on Friday, Judge Laura Selber Silverstein pushed back the start of the confirmation hearing from February 22 to March 9. Scouts had only asked for a one-week delay, while opponents of the plan said they would need several weeks to analyze and respond to changes in the plan.
