“Leave No Trace” — a new documentary film about the Boy Scouts of America’s collapse into bankruptcy after decades of failing to address sexual predators in the organization’s ranks – premiered on Hulu on June 16, 2022.
Attorneys Stephen Crew and Peter Janci from the Crew Janci LLP law firm were honored to be featured in the new documentary. Both were interviewed about their extensive work in representing victims of child sexual abuse in scouting over the last 15 years.
“Leave No Trace” looks at the systemic problem of child sexual abuse in Scouting, told through firsthand accounts of survivors still trying to cope with their trauma today, even as they work for justice in a high-stakes court case. The film draws on financial records, court documents, interviews and taped depositions with former BSA leadership, and more to dissect a century long cover-up by The Boy Scouts of America (BSA). The organization concealed that pedophiles were in its ranks, but the disclosure of secret “perversion files” in litigation eventually led to disgrace and bankruptcy.
Here is the trailer from ABC News Studios, which is distributing the film nationally on its Hulu platform after its recent premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York:
