JURY AWARDS $18.5 IN PUNITIVE DAMAGES IN SEX ABUSE CASE AGAINST BOY SCOUTS
Wow – for some reason I didn’t see this.
In my April 23 2010 post, I discussed the $1.4 million dollar jury verdict against the Boy Scouts of America. The verdict, on behalf of plaintiff Kerry Lewis, represented only the compensatory damages for the sexual abuse he endured back in the 1980’s at the hands of Scoutmaster Timur Dykes[pictured below] while Lewis was a Boy Scout. At that time, the jury had not decided on punitive damages.
