In recent years, controversy has surrounded the Boy Scouts of America as well as Catholic and Protestant churches alike. It has come to light that many young people in these organizations may have been sexually abused or preyed upon by leaders in positions of power, including school resource officers, scout leaders, chaperones, and members of the clergy.
It Is Not Too Late to Get Justice
Legal reforms, such as New York’s Child Victims Act and Adult Survivors Act, as well as California’s Assembly Bill 3092, make it possible for the victims of sexual abuse to file lawsuits for compensation even when the usual statute of limitations has expired. With the passage of these new laws, many thousands of individuals have joined mass torts against public and private school systems, community organizations like the Boy Scouts, and religious institutions like the Catholic Church, alleging that these entities failed to protect them from predatory behavior.
