There is no coverage for "hanky-panky" under any policy, BSA or not.
Intentional acts are usually not covered by insurance. Intentionally
illegal acts are never covered by insurance. The BSA policy probably would
kick in to defend if you were sued as a unit leader who unknowingly
recruited or "supervised" an assistant who did an intentional act.
However, BSA insurance is secondary, according to law. Your homeowner's
insurance is primary.
Two. We are supposed to have that infamous BSA National provided insurance
coverage and backup in case of incidents that arise in this area
misfeasence, hanky-panky). I find it hard to believe that National,
its insurance providers, (and by extension its Councils) can continue in
position while relinquishing the duty of qualifying its volunteers
Are we to lose this coverage and support next?
