Currently, more than 3,000 men are suing the Boy Scouts of America for allowing pedophiles inside the organization to prey on boys. It’s important for any other victims to take legal action as quickly as possible, as the organization has now filed for bankruptcy.

With news of the bankruptcy bid, it’s important for victims of Boy Scout-related abuse to come forward before the Chapter 11 process is finalized. Failing to do so could risk not fully holding the negligent party accountable for the incidents of abuse that wrongfully occurred.

In Two Years, Uber Received Nearly 6,000 Sexual Assault Claims

Kidnapping and assaults occurring during Uber trips have become common news stories lately. Based on previous stories, we could only assume the kinds of complaints that Uber was getting, but now, Uber has revealed the severity and volume of its complaints over the past two years.

Uber received 5,981 claims of sexual assault in the U.S. in 2017 and 2018. While there were 2.3 billion Uber trips over those two years, making the number of sexual assaults just a fraction of a percent of total trips, that’s still too many for a service intended to get its customers from point A to point B safely. According to the report, over half of those accused were the drivers during the trip.
