Re: “Boy Scouts Sued for Sex Abuse

Two things comes to mind: 1. Boy Scout leaders are usually volunteers and are not employed by BSA, so not sure that this case can get traction. 2. BSA was nearly destroyed by pedophilia that came to light in the late 1970's. Over 1,800 Scout leaders were dismissed, many were charged. Considering the size of BSA, it dwarfed the Catholic scandle of recent years. However, as a result BSA has built what is considered to be a model in preventing these situations from happening. Since then the organization has rebounded and cases like this are minimal. So not sure why they are suing an organization for something that happened 30 years ago and since then BSA has built in top defenses to protect the children in their care. Sounds to me like someone is just out to get money on this one. Oh well, what are lawsuits really? Legalize blackmail.
