Helping Survivors Reclaim Their Lives

Childhood sexual abuse is a prevalent and devastating epidemic in America today. Childhood sexual abuse can cause tragic societal effects that are accompanied by individual effects, causing victims to suffer throughout their adult lives.  The attorneys and staff at Kosnoff Fasy believe that survivors deserve the chance to confront sexual abuse perpetrators and seek often long-awaited justice. + Read More

The attorneys at Kosnoff Fasy have collectively devoted more than 20 years exclusively to helping child sexual abuse survivors. Tim Kosnoff and Dan Fasy not only take on individual sexual predators; they also bring lawsuits against the institutions and organizations that protect, harbor, and enable sexual abusers.

Kosnoff Fasy's successes against the Boy Scouts of America, several Catholic dioceses, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the Salvation Army, and the Jesuits and other religious orders have drawn the public's attention to the rampant concealment of child sexual abuse within those organizations.

Boy Scouts of America ‘Betrayed the Trust’ of the American public

For nearly a century, the Boy Scouts of America has kept thousands of confidential internal files detailing incidents of alleged child sexual abuse by scoutmasters. Instead of turning these cases over to authorities, scouting officials quietly dismissed these sexual predators from the organization. We believe it was entirely predictable that alleged abusers would go on to abuse other children because they were not turned over to police, prosecuted, convicted, identified as sexual molesters and incarcerated. Those are just a few reasons why Kosnoff Fasy attorneys have represented more than 100 sexual-abuse victims in cases against the Boy Scouts of America.+ Read More

Note: The following index documents decades of child sexual-abuse complaints lodged against volunteers associated with the Boy Scouts of America. This information is from the Boy Scouts of America’s own internal files. This information is being provided in the interests of public safety and education. Many of these individuals have never been given an opportunity to refute these allegations in a court of law. Therefore, we make no assumptions about their guilt or innocence.

The information contained in this index was compiled by attorney Tim Kosnoff of Kosnoff Fasy, who has represented more than 100 child sex-abuse cases against the Boy Scouts of America in the past decade. Kosnoff gathered these 65,000 pages of documents over many years and from a variety of sources, including court cases and those who had access to the Boy Scouts of America database.

Kosnoff then spent several years analyzing the materials. His 1971-1991 index identifies 1,932 volunteers expelled for alleged inappropriate sexual conduct with children. Included here are Kosnoff’s attorney notes on thousands of alleged perpetrators. Kosnoff shared this information with the Los Angeles Times in spring 2011. The Los Angeles Times used this information to produce a series of news articles about sexual predators serving within the ranks of the Boy Scouts of America.
