SEATTLE (AP) — A dozen men are filing a broad new lawsuit against the Boy Scouts and some of its former adult leaders, saying that abuse occurred regularly in Washington state sites.
The case filed Thursday accuses 13 different people of abuse. They include a scoutmaster accused of repeatedly abusing two boys, a camp cook accused of raping a boy, and a business manager accused of abusing a boy in a tent.
Attorneys say the case shows that the Scouts and its affiliated organizations demonstrated negligence in failing to protect scouts. The Washington state cases focus particularly on problems at Camp Brinkley, a popular destination about an hour outside of Seattle.
A spokesman for the Boy Scouts of America declined comment but says the organization deeply regrets that there have been times when Scouts were abused.
