Important announcement regarding notice of lawsuit

Hal Simon, the Chairman of the SCA Board of Directors, and Patrick Anderson, SCA President, have issued this announcement concerning pending litigation against the SCA.

The Directors and Corporate Staff would like to inform the membership of the SCA that the SCA, Inc. has been named in two civil suits based on alleged sexual misconduct of an adult toward minors. Unfortunately, the individual accused of the misconduct was a member 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. The adult involved has since been subject to absolute banishment from the SCA.

The suits originated in Pennsylvania, USA, and were served on the SCA in March of 2007. Complete information regarding the suits is not yet known. As we are able, we will continue to update our membership.

Sincerely,
Hal Simon
Chairman-SCA, Inc.
