The Oregon Supreme Court has ruled that records from the Boy Scouts from the last 20 years need to be made public. 20,000 pages of the so-called “Perversion Files” compiled by the Boy Scouts on suspected child abusers over a period of 20 years should be released. The Oregon Supreme Court denied an attempt by the Boy Scouts of America to keep the records gathered from 1965-1985 sealed. The files were used as evidence in a lawsuit against the Scouts in a case that ended in 2010 with a jury ruling that the organization had failed to protect a man who was molested by an assistant scoutmaster in the early 1980s. A Multnomah County judge ordered the files to be opened to the public, with redactions.
