Boy Scouts “Perversion” Files
From the 1920s to present day, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has maintained an internal filing system of scout leaders accused of misconduct, including sexual abuse. The “Ineligible Volunteer Files” (IV Files) constitute five categories, including sexual misconduct, a.k.a., Perversion Files. These Perversion Files illustrate the knowledge that the BSA has about the history and context of sexual abuse of children within scouting. Significantly, Courts have ordered the release of these files as part of numerous court cases throughout the country. In fall 2012, the Perversion Files from the years 1965 to 1985 were made public.
As experienced Boy Scout sexual abuse lawyers, we are dedicated to exposing more predators within the Boy Scouts of America throughout the nation and bringing justice to those seeking healing and hope in their path toward recovery. In January 2013, in the case of John Doe 180 v. The National Boy Scouts of America Foundation et al., a Ramsey County District Court Judge ordered the release of the Boy Scouts of America’s confidential Perversion Files from 1999-2008. That production amounted to the release of 1539 IV Files.
