In a case that was pending in an Idaho federal court, there has been a settlement between a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and both the Boy Scouts of America and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The plaintiff alleged that he was abused by his scoutmaster over a three-year period in the 1960s in Oregon and Idaho. He said that the two groups, which ran the scouting group together, had not done enough to protect the children in its care. Last month the Boy Scouts complied with a court order and released more than 1,200 previously secret files they had kept documenting sex abusers in their ranks. Several of the abusers are connected to North Carolina.
