A jury on Friday ordered the Boy Scouts of America to pay $18.5 million to Lewis who was sexually abused by a former assistant Scoutmaster in what is believed to be the largest such award against the organization. The Oregon Supreme Court has approved the release of 20,000 pages of so-called perversion files compiled by the Boy Scouts of America on suspected child molesters within the organization for more than 20 years, giving the public its first chance to review the records.
