Next week, Oregon attorney Kelly Clark is set to release tens of thousands of the “perversion files.” In 2010, Kelly, Paul Mones, and their legal team used the files to prove to an Oregon jury that the Boy Scouts failed to take timely and adequate steps to protect children from being sexually abused. The jury awarded $1,400,000 in compensatory damages and $18.5 million in punitive damages against the Boy Scouts.
We work closely with Kelly and Mones on a number of Boy Scout cases and support their diligent effort to bring sunshine to this problem. Other attorneys have been in the news recently trying to take undue credit for the hard work of Kelly, Paul, and their legal team, as well as our own efforts to hold the Boy Scouts accountable. If you or someone you love survived Boy Scout abuse, we strongly encourage you to Kelly, Paul, or our firm.
