Founded in 1910, the Boy Scouts of America® (BSA) is one of the nation's largest organizations, with over 2.4 million boy scouts and nearly a million adult volunteers. Current lawsuits allege that Cub Scouts®, Boy Scouts® and Explorer Scouts® have been sexually abused by Scoutmasters® and other adult leaders.


According to newly released records, nearly 8,000 Boy Scout® Leaders have been accused of sexual abuse since 1944 alone.

If you were abused by a leader of the Boy Scouts®, you are not alone. Those who have been abused as a Boy Scout®, Cub Scout®, or Explorer Scout® may be eligible for compensation.
