Janice Morse reports:
A lawsuit will be filed Tuesday in Warren County, alleging that a Scoutmaster sexually abused a boy during a trip to the Kings Island amusement park in Mason, around 1999, lawyers said in a news release.
The man who is making the allegations “has decided to go public with his name” as he makes accusations of negligence and fraud against the Boy Scouts of America, the release said.
A Mason-based attorney, Konrad Kircher, will reveal additional information at a news conference tomorrow after the suit is filed, the release said.
Kircher is working on the Mason case with two Oregon lawyers, Kelly Clark and Paul Mones, who were the lead trial attorneys in a 2010 case that “forced the first public release of the Boy Scout’s secret internal ‘perversion’ files on known pedophiles.” That case also resulted in a $19.5 million verdict against the Scouts.
No additional details were disclosed.
