Boy Scouts’ legal woes continue to mount
ASHEVILLE, N.C. (BP) -- The Boy Scouts of America could soon face more legal trouble over alleged sexual abuse. Several states are moving to adjust statute-of-limitations laws so more victims of past abuse can sue for damages. New York passed a law allowing years-old lawsuits in August 2018, and New Jersey has one waiting for the governor's signature. Similar bills are pending in Pennsylvania and California.
