In early 2012, the SCA settled a 
lawsuit brought in 2009 against it and
three local SCA officers. At this time last year, the SCA asked each of the
Kingdoms of the Knowne World to contribute to the financial settlement of
that 2009 
lawsuit. At that time, the Board of Directors committed to
pursuing a 
lawsuit against an insurance carrier that refused to contribute
to the settlement and sought repayment of the amounts contributed by the
SCA's kingdoms.

The Board of Directors is pleased to announce that the 
lawsuit against the
insurance carrier has been settled and the SCA has recouped a significant
portion of the monies spent on the settlement of the 2009 
lawsuit. Due to
confidentiality provisions in the settlement agreement with the insurance
carrier, the Board is unable to provide any details of the settlement with
the insurance carrier. However, as of February 11, 2013, the corporate
office will send checks to each of the Kingdoms who contributed to the
settlement of the 2009 
lawsuit, reimbursing each Kingdom approximately
two-thirds of the contributions made by such Kingdom.

The Board would like to extend its heart-felt gratitude to each and every
one of its members for their support of the corporation during these trying
times. We now look forward to building on the strengths of our Society to
ensure our organization's future success.
