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, as a direct result of claims brought by survivors of child sex abuse and their advocates, courts have ordered the release of these files throughout the country, amounting to nearly 8,000 accused perpetrators and an estimated 12,000+ children abused.

Boy Scouts of America & Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

In December of 2018, the Wall Street Journal reported that, between dwindling numbers and mounting sexual abuse allegations, the Boy Scouts of America was considering filing for bankruptcy. As demonstrated over the years by Catholic dioceses facing similar circumstances, this option stands to benefit the organization far more than those hurt by perpetrators within it; but survivors still may have a claim against the Boy Scouts and a path, not only to justice, but to greater safety for all children involved in scouts through the release of secret IV Files on perpetrators within the BSA.
