The truth about the Boy Scouts "Perversion Files"
The public is finally learning about the Boy Scouts’ “perversion” files, which our attorneys first obtained almost two decades ago. These files show BSA knew for decades how sexual predators were using Scouts to abuse children. Despite that knowledge, BSA failed to take adequate steps to change their policies until the mid-1980s. That was too late to protect thousands of children.
This website is provided by attorneys who have focused their lives on representing abuse survivors. It is a resource for those survivors, as well as lawyers who need help prosecuting their claims.
Important Note: Some recent reports in 2019 have suggested there is a “new” list of Boy Scout leaders from the “perversion” files. This is not accurate. The publicly available files, which you can read on this website, were released many years ago and that is the source of the “new” list. This is important for people to know because there are likely hundreds, if not thousands, of Scout leaders who are identified in files that have not yet been made public. We have represented many people who were abused by Scout leaders whose names were not in the publicly available files, so please do not be discouraged or think you will not be believed if a particular Scout leader’s name is not in the files.
