A boy who says he was sexually abused by his troop leader in 2007 has filed a lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America in Santa Barbara. The suit filed Wednesday by attorneys for the unnamed boy seeks unspecified damages and an injunction against the Boy Scouts for what it calls a policy of concealment of sexual abuse.
The suit stems from the case of Albert Stein, who in February 2009 pleaded no contest to two counts of molestation, one of them against the plaintiff. Stein is in prison and a registered sex offender.
The Boy Scouts said in a statement to KSBY-TV that in June they made youth protection training mandatory for all volunteers and that they include a sex abuse education pamphlet with every scout handbook.
