      Six men settle with Boy Scouts over abuse claims

      September 2, 2010 by admin

      From the AAJ News Brief for John Badal, lawyer for Liever, Hyman & Potter, serving Berks and Schuylkill Counties:

      The AP (9/1) reported, “Six men who were sexually abused three decades ago by a leader of their Boy Scouts troop have settled lawsuits against the national organization dedicated to building character among youngsters. The settlement followed a trial in which the Scouts were accused of failing to act for decades on a growing trove of documents alleging sexual abuse — known in the organization as “the perversion files.'” The jury “found the Texas-based Boy Scouts of America negligent for allowing a former assistant scoutmaster, Timur Dykes, to associate with Scouts after he admitted to a Scouts official in 1983 that he had molested 17 boys.” The New York Times (9/2, A25, Seelye) reports, “The lawyers said their clients had decided to settle because their cases could have gone on for years.”
