December 17, 2014

WATERBURY, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A Connecticut jury has issued a $7 million verdict against the Boy Scouts of America in a lawsuit by a man who says he was sexually abused by a scout leader in the mid-1970s.

Lawyers for the man say the decision handed down Friday in Waterbury Superior Court was the largest verdict for compensatory damages against the Boy Scouts of America, WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau reported. The jury also found the Boy Scouts liable for punitive damages, with the amount to be determined by a judge.
