AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – The Boy Scouts of America is asking the Texas Supreme Court to review an order requiring it to turn over years of so-called ‘perversion files’ in a child abuse lawsuit.

BSA filed its request last week, a month after the San Antonio-based 4th Court of Appeals sided with a district judge’s order. Attorneys for a former Scout who says he was abused by his now-imprisoned former Scoutmaster are asking for about a decade’s worth of the internal files.

Files publicly revealed from 1965 to 1985 in a different case showed a decades-long cover-up for sexual abuse allegations by Scout officials.

Scouts spokesman Deron Smith declined to comment. Paul Mones, an attorney for the ex-Scout, says he will wait to see what the court does on the case.

The victim is seeking unspecified damages against the Boy Scouts and its Alamo Area Council in San Antonio, alleging they failed to protect him.
