SCA named in civil suit in Pennsylvania

Announcement from the Board of Directors, SCA, Inc.

The directors and corporate staff have the unfortunate obligation to inform the membership that the SCA, Inc. has been named in a civil suit seeking damages as a result of sexual misconduct of an adult toward minors.

Unfortunately, at the time the activities occurred, the individual was a member and officer of the SCA. The SCA clearly did not sanction the alleged misconduct, had no prior knowledge of the misconduct, and had never received any complaints concerning the adult involved prior to his arrest.

This suit originated in Pennsylvania, USA, and was filed in January of 2010. Complete information regarding this suit is not yet known, as it is still in the preliminary stages.

The Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. intends to take all appropriate actions available to defend itself against the allegations in these suits.  As we are able, we will continue to update our membership.

SCA named in civil suit in Pennsylvania

As is usual, an entire group is smeared by the vile actions of one person. Not one person of my aquaintance in the S.C.A. would condone this kind of thing. I hope the perpetrator thereof is utterly and permanently banned from this Society!
