The Boys Scouts of America and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have agreed to settle a lawsuit filed by a Portland man who said they didn't do enough to stop a Scout troop leader from sexually abusing children.
A document filed November 15 in U.S. District Court in Boise says both sides agreed to an undisclosed monetary settlement. Oregon attorney Gilion Dumas represents the Portland man and says the settlement will be final once a judge approves a request from both sides to dismiss the suit. The lawsuit alleges the leader of a Boy Scout troop in Nampa sexually abused the plaintiff over three years in both Idaho and Oregon starting in 1967.
