5 things to know: Girl Scouts vs. Boy Scouts lawsuit

Thousands of younger girls have already joined the cub scouts, and the BSA will also be accepting older girls in 2019.

WASHINGTON — The Boy Scouts of America and the Girl Scouts of the United States of America are about to throw down.

Here’s why: The Boy Scouts is going to drop the word ‘boy’ from its name in by February 2019 and is now allowing girls to join.

That fact has the Girl Scouts organization miffed and fighting back with a lawsuit.

5 things to know: Girl Scouts vs. Boy Scouts lawsuit

#1 The Lawsuit

The GSUSA filed a lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America on November 6, 2018.

#2 The Allegations

The GSUSA allege the BSA is infringing on its trademark, making unfair competition, and causing a lot of confusion.

#3 How did we get here?

The Boy Scouts plans to drop the ‘boy’ from it’s name next year to attract more girls to it’s now “all-inclusive” program.

It will now be called Scouts BSA.

#4 BSA’s advertisements are reportedly confusing some people.

The Girl Scouts said BSA’s new name and the way the group is advertising is a problem.

The GSUSA said the Boy Scouts do not have a monopoly over words like “scout” or “scouting” and that advertisements have sparked confusion.

In the complaint, the Girl Scouts said the alleged trademark infringement leads some people to think the groups merged or that the Girl Scouts does not exist anymore.

#5 The lawsuit seeks an injunction against trademark violations and compensation.

Thousands of younger girls have already joined the cub scouts, and the BSA will also be accepting older girls in 2019.

This case is under litigation, and both sides are expected to meet with a judge in January.

Lawsuit Against Boy Scouts Details ‘Perversion Files’


Yes, adding tens of thousands of junior feminist GoGrrlz and tomboys — and their Second Wave feminist “PhD moms” with a Social Justice chip on their pocket flap — is the smart thing for BSA Corp. to do in the age of “Pound MeToo.”

It will definitively end the sexual abuse of young boys in the Boy Scouts.

Yep.

Definitively.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (CN) – Claiming the youth organization was infiltrated by pedophiles, an Arkansas man filed a lawsuit saying the Boy Scouts allowed a scout leader accused of sexually assaulting boys in Georgia to relocate and abuse him several years later.

“Since its inception, [the Boy Scouts of America] aggressively marketed the wholesomeness and safety of its programs to the American public,” the complaint states.  “Simultaneously, BSA concealed from scouts and their parents BSA’s certain knowledge that pedophiles had been infiltrating BSA in large numbers for many years.”The complaint, filed Wednesday in Pulaski County Circuit Court, claims the way the Boy Scouts tried to identify sexual abusers within its organization by keeping allegations a secret and discouraging police involvement led to Samuel Otts abusing William Stevens eight times in 1979 and 1980.

Otts helped lead a troop of scouts that met at the Salvation Army in Hot Springs, Arkansas, when Stevens was in his preteens, according to the lawsuit filed by lead attorney Joshua Gillespie of Green & Gillespie.

The suit seeks compensatory damages from the Boy Scouts of America and the Quapaw Area Council for claims of negligence and fraud.

While the statute of limitations has typically long passed for those types of claims, Gillispie wrote in the complaint that the Boy Scouts fraudulently concealed their actions from Stevens.
