Since 1910, the Boy Scouts of America® (BSA) was regarded as one of the nation's largest organizations. At its peak, the organization boasted over 2.4 million boy scouts and nearly a million adult volunteers. Current lawsuits allege that many Cub Scouts®, Boy Scouts® and Explorer Scouts® have been sexually abused by Scoutmasters® and other adult leaders.

Additionally, newly released records have found nearly 8,000 Boy Scout Leaders® have been accused of sexual abuse. Documents that contained details of the abuse are now known as the "Perversion Files". These files have been hidden from the public since 1919, yet recent laws have now allowed victims to come forward.

Due to new laws, there is no statute of limitations on cases of abuse. Additionally, a victim's fund has been set up to provide victims with equitable compensation.  If you were abused by a Scoutmaster® or another adult leader in the Boy Scouts of America®, you are not alone. Those who have been abused as a Boy Scout®, Cub Scout®, or Explorer Scout® may be eligible for significant compensation.
