PORTLAND, Oregon (October 9, 2012)—Tim Kosnoff, a Seattle lawyer who has represented victims of sexual abuse in lawsuits against the Boy Scouts of America is shedding some Internet light on some of the inner-workings of the organization.
Kosnoff has posted an index of records from the Scouts' so-called perversion files on his Web site that includes a list of 1,900 volunteers who were kicked out of the organization between 1971 and 1991 for allegedly having inappropriate sexual contact with children.
The site does not include copies of the actual files, which were previously released in the 1990s by a California judge and have been written about by news organizations.
Similar records created between 1966 and 1985 are expected to be released soon, after a ruling by the Oregon Supreme Court.
