BOISE, Idaho (AP) – A man has filed a $5 million lawsuit against the Boy Scouts and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, claiming the two entities didn’t do enough to stop the sexual abuse of children by troop leaders.

The lawsuit was filed in Oregon State Court in eastern Oregon’s Malheur County on Thursday by a man identified only as Tom Doe.

Doe alleges that the leader of his Nampa, Idaho Boy Scout troop sexually abused him for about three years, starting in 1967, and that the abuse left him with debilitating physical, emotional and mental injuries.
