Boy Scouts Sexual Abuse Lawsuits: What You Need to Know
Much like the Catholic Church, the Boy Scouts of America has a dark past with decades and decades of reports of sexual abuse. Boy Scouts sexual abuse lawsuits are now coming to light — and more and more will be filed — thanks to a recent report that shed light on the tragedy.
During a trial in Minnesota, Janet Warren, a professor at the University of Virginia and an expert on child sexual abuse, revealed that the Boy Scouts have kept files since the 1920s, which named nearly 8,000 perpetrators and over 12,000 victims in Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Explorer Scouts, and Sea Scouts.

Boy Scouts Sexual Abuse Lawsuits
Brian and Bruce Taubman have extensive experience investigating and trying cases on behalf of victims of all ages. We represent survivors of sexual abuse against institutions of trust who serve children and teens. Right now, there are over 2 million Boy Scouts and almost a million adult volunteers. Scouting should be a positive experience for these boys. Unfortunately, many of them have been sexually molested and more could be dealing with abuse at this very moment. And the Boy Scouts of America aren’t doing much to stop it. Their Perversion Files (formerly known as the Red Flag list and the Ineligible Volunteer list) don’t just identify the adult leaders who sexually abused boys, they show exactly how these child molesters infiltrated the Boy Scouts and sexually abused innocent Scouts, including how they gained the trust of the Scouts and their parents and how they use camping trips, one-on-one meetings, and other activities as a cover for their abuse.
We will not let the Boy Scouts of America hide this problem anymore. We understand the plight of the victims and what they and their families are going through.
