Texas judge backs order requiring Boy Scouts to turn over abuse files; immediate move unlikely

A Texas judge has reaffirmed an earlier ruling requiring the Boy Scouts of America to turn over "perversion" files kept on abuse claims, though it's unlikely that will happen soon.

Wednesday's ruling by State District Judge Laura Salinas sets a deadline of April 1 to turn over files from 1996 to 2006. The Boy Scouts had appealed a similar order by Judge Martha Tanner. Tanner retired after issuing that order.

The local and national Scout organizations were sued in San Antonio by a former scout who says he was sexually assaulted by a now-imprisoned former scoutmaster.

Paul Mones, one of the boy's attorneys, says Tanner's retirement led a state appeals court to send the case back to a new judge.

A Boy Scouts spokesman did not immediately return a message.
