Boy Scouts Ruled to Turn Over Files
updated: May 16, 2014, 6:40 PM

The Boy Scouts of America have been ordered to turn over 20 years of personnel files to a plaintiff in a sexual abuse lawsuit, reports KSBY.

On Friday, Santa Barbara County Superior Court Judge Donna Geck ruled the files from 1971 to 1991 that allegedly depict knowledge of molestations are to be turned over which may be allowed as evidence for the trial set in October.

The plaintiff, a former Santa Barbara Scout who claims he was molested at 13-years-old by volunteer Scout leader Al Stein, is seeking damages from Boy Scouts of America in the civil suit. His attorney hopes to show the Scouts knew of sexual abuse and did not warn parents or protect children.

Stein pleaded no contest to two counts involving the plaintiff and another boy. The trial is scheduled for Oct. 3.
