Sexual Abuse in Boy Scouts of America

Sexual Abuse in Boy Scouts of America

Pedophilia is in the news and in the thoughts of many Americans. Eisenberg and Baum understands the need for closure after a sexual molestation case and will work tirelessly to protect your interests.

The Boy Scouts of America

For generations, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has been a staple of invaluable experiences for generations of young men. However, as we’ve come to learn, for nearly 90 years, the organization knew child molesters infiltrated its ranks.

In 2010, a jury awarded a $19.9 million dollar verdict to a man who was sexually abused by his scout leader. From this case, the public gained access to the Boy Scouts’ Perversion Files, a set of BSA confidential documents containing information about sexually abusive adult leaders.

Similar to the relationship with a member of the clergy, young men are taught to respect, obey, and admire their scoutmasters. These boys place immense trust in their leaders. Eventually, it is this trust that is exploited by those who sexually abuse the scouts.

It’s Not Just Boys in Middle School

We should sadly mention it’s not just boys in middle school, but victims include men in their 60’s.

At Eisenberg and Baum, we understand the victim’s plight and recognize how sexual abuse often produces serious, long-lasting psychological and emotional injuries.

Our firm retains highly experienced and skilled mental health professionals to help evaluate our clients’ damages.

Regardless of when the molestation occurred to you or a loved one, please contact us, so that we may assist you in deciding your best course of action.
