Boy Scouts Sued By 15 Former Suburban Men

Posted on in In the News


Fifteen former Boy Scouts from the suburb of Burbank filed a lawsuit Wednesday alleging that the organization failed to protect them from a scout leader who was later convicted of molestation.

The lawsuit filed in Cook County Circuit Court names the Boy Scouts of America and the group's Chicago Area Council. It was filed by unnamed men — all referred to as "John Doe" — who were members of the same troop from 1980 until 1987. A 16th former scout sued late last year.
