On Behalf of Their Majesties

From the Society Seneschals Page:

“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.”

Their Royal Majesties Timmur and Saige are so happy to be able to share this
wonderful news with you and to know that Our kingdom has drawn together to support
Our society during these struggles. We are extremely grateful to every member of the
Kingdom of Artemisia who helped provide the funds that were contributed toward the
financial settlement last year. We are especially grateful to those Baronies, Shires
and Households who held fundraisers to help strengthen Our coffers once the check
was sent. Although the exact amount is not yet known that We have to work with, Our
intention is to reimburse those Shires and Baronies approximately two-thirds of the
amount contributed. Those groups also have the option to leave the funds with the
Kingdom to help with the start-up costs for the Talon-Crescent War if they so
choose. We appreciate all you do to support one another and to continue living the
Dream.

Timmur and Saige
