Former Medford Scoutmaster Among those in Boy Scout 'Perversion Files': A Medford scoutmaster in the 1960s was banned from involvement with the Boy Scouts after multiple members of his troop alleged he had inappropriate contact with them, according to previously non-public Boy Scouts of America files. The files were released Thursday by order of the Oregon Supreme Court. They were used as evidence in a 2010 lawsuit against the Scouts in a molestation case that resulted in a jury awarding $20 million to a man molested by an assistant scoutmaster in the 1980s.
