A Eugene man, who was sexually abused at the hands of a Boy Scout leader in the 1960's filed a lawsuit to sue the Boy Scouts Wednesday. The law firm representing the victim, made the announcement in Bend. Steve Crew is with the Portland law firm O'Donnel, Clark and crew. “We really think it’s a Central Oregon case, Central Oregon story. Ed Dyer is the perpetrator who started his career in Eugene and that's where our client was abused and where he ended his career. He lived in the Sisters or Redmond active in scouts and sexually abused boys for 25 years.” Ed Dyer, who was a Scoutmaster was shot and killed in 1986 by one of his victims. This latest victim is suing the Boys Scouts for allowing Dyer to serve as a Scoutmaster. The Boy Scouts say they have taken steps to make sure any individual suspected of abuse is immediately banned from scouting.
