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 Scout leader 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.
