Kerry Lewis Wins $1 Million From Boy Scouts Over Sex Abuse. And Maybe More

Kerry Lewis, a 38-year-old Oregon man who said he was molested in the 1980s by assistant Boy Scouts scoutmaster Tim Dykes, was awarded $1 million by a jury that deliberated for three days. It found the the “national body 60% negligent for the abuse and the local council just 15% negligent, assessing economic damages of $840,000 and $210,000, respectively.” Oh, and they haven’t even gotten to punitive damages yet; Lewis is asking for $25 million.
