I think I'll just skip SCA-East for a few weeks.

If you're really interested, SCA East is over here =>

I'm not sure I want to put myself through signing up again to SCA-East just to read the details... Can someone cross-post it to the LJ SCA-East, or just let me know where I can find the BoD website in case it's listed there?

IIRC, there's no archives to that list, though?

There hasn't been an announcement of a lawsuit on my kingdom's mailing list. *hrm*

There's the SCA-wide announcement list, where this originated:

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.

Board of Directors

SCA, Inc

If you distract them now with something completely different, that could work.

Or we could just talk about something else.


Think we'll have much snow at Spring Crown?

Probably not much, but based on prior experience, surely a cold rain.

We're working really hard to have a better Crown than the last one, weather wise.
Really, we are. I've got Shamans, and Rabbi's and I've done prayers and..... and....... :-)

I missed that Crown, but all the others I've been to in Tir Mara have been sunny, glorious days. The Crown in Havre de Glace was even held outside!
So, I'm hoping for that weather.

And after skipping it for a few weeks, you might decide you have a fuller life without reading it all. :)

It's been 7 years now, for me.

Re: the lawsuit: this was guessed to be coming for years, assuming it's the same incident in PA from 8-some years ago. Was there any doubt it would happen?

Its been so long I assumed it had been settled out of court.

There was a state-court lawsuit. This is a new federal lawsuit.

Ah. I was wondering.

....issue preclusion doesn't prevent this?

(lookit me with talking the talk as I fall down on my ass with no walk in my walk)

Yeah yeah, the sky is falling blah blah blah blah.

I highly recommend avoiding reading the EK List while working on a reign in any event. See you at Mudthaw?

I assumed it's the same case as a few years back -- yes?

Must write to Meg and see how she's holding up as she was named specifically the last time that case went to court... :(

Meg was not named in this one.

Ah, good to know. No wonder she only learnt of it all via the Announcements list then!

Yeah, that's gotta be voluminous on that list... because nothing gets people worked up more than the chance to rant about something they can do nothing about!
