The Legal Intelligencer Spotlights Eisenberg Rothweiler’s Work Representing Clients Sexually Abused by Boy Scout Leaders

A recent front-page article in The Legal Intelligencer, the leading Pennsylvania daily newspaper covering the legal industry, discussed in detail the work Stewart Eisenberg and Josh Schwartz have done on behalf of their clients who allege they were sexually abused by Boy Scouts of America scoutmasters. The article focused on the impact state laws have on the ability for survivors of sexual abuse by scoutmasters to bring lawsuits against the Boy Scouts.

The article mentioned the lawsuit that Stewart and Josh filed in August 2019 in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas on behalf of their client who alleges that he was assaulted hundreds of times by a former scoutmaster when he was a Boy Scout in Northeastern Pennsylvania in the 1970s.

The article also mentioned the large number of sex abuse lawsuits that Eisenberg Rothweiler and its partners on the Abused in Scouting legal team plan to file in the coming months against the Boy Scouts.
