Have any Councils been defendants in Abuse litigation?

As we know, National and the individual councils are separate legal entities. National has filed Ch 11 to work through the existing and future abuse litigation. Does anyone know whether any individual Councils have been named defendants in the abuse litigation? Have any Councils had to file for protection under the bankruptcy laws?

I believe that Inland Empire council was a named defendant in a similar suit, but I don’t know anything about the outcome. I think I saw it in the news late last year.

I found an article that talks about the Inland Empire Council case. https://www.pe.com/2019/12/21/boy-scouts-and-groups-inland-empire-council-sued-over-molestation-allegations-against-wildomar-man/
