Boy Scout Child Abuse Lawsuit
The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is supposed to be a way for kids to learn survival skills and the value of teamwork. Unfortunately, Boy Scout troops can attract morally bankrupt men who use their positions as scoutmasters to prey on children.
We are exploring legal action against the Boy Scouts of America for cases in which it may have failed to prevent child abuse.
There are 1,247 BSA files pertaining to instances of molestation or sexual abuse of Scouts between 1965 and 1984. Ostensibly these “perversion files” exist to prevent known abusers from committing these terrible crimes again. But too often, according to the Los Angeles Times, the files and the BSA failed and endangered innocent Boy Scouts.
