Four men who say they suffered sexual abuse by former Boy Scout leader Steven T. Hill during 1976-1977, have filed a lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of American and the Portland, Oregon Cascade Pacific Council alleging the branch knew Hill was a threat but did nothing to stop him.

According to the lawsuit, the local police, the U.S. Navy, and the Scouts were notified that Hill had abused a Scout in California in 1975. When Hill moved to the Oregon branch of the Scouts, the California branch warned them of the allegations against Hill, but the Oregon branch did nothing to prevent him from joining.

Hill, who served a 20 sentence on unrelated sex abuse charges, gave a deposition while in prison saying that a Scout executive in California told a Scout executive in Oregon about the accusation of abuse, but he was still transferred to the Oregon branch.

The lawsuit seeks $5 million per victim, who were between the ages of 12 and 14 at the time the alleged abuse took place.
