The confluence of an $18,500,000 verdict against the Boy Scouts, my email to the Ohio Association of Nonprofit Organizations, and a pending Ohio legislative bill, led me to send the following email to Boy Scout councils in Ohio.

Subj: Are the Boy Scouts being victimized by plaintiffs' lawyers?
I think plaintiffs’ lawyers are victimizing the entirety of the United States. That includes the Boy Scouts (as exemplified by the recent $18,500,000 verdict against the Boy Scouts http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/24/us/24scouts.html ), and Catholic Church dioceses in the United States as well.As to the Catholic Church, in 2005 I sent to Catholic dioceses around the country the email that is set forth at this link: http://robertshattuck.blogspot.com/2007/11/catholic-church-sex-abuse-scandal.html
Among other things, the plaintiffs' lawyers employ a "divide and conquer" strategy. While they go about victimizing one group, the plaintiffs' lawyers bribe other groups to avert the latter's eyes from what is going on against the first group. This is until something happens, and one of the other groups has become eligible to be attacked and victimized by the plaintiffs' lawyers
I am writing to you and other Boy Scount councils in Ohio because the Ohio legislature is currently considering legislation that will extend the plaintiffs' lawyers ability to implement their conquer and divide strategy. See this link: http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/bills.cfm?ID=128_HB_0427
I have written an email to the Ohio Association of Nonprofit Organizations to point this matter out to them. My email to OANO is appended below if you would like to read it.
I hope you will convery this message to other supporters of the Boy Scouts in Ohio, and that you and they will engage in discussion with other Ohio nonprofit organizations about how the plaintiffs' lawyers "conquer and divide," and further that all concerned will contact their Ohio legislators and tell them the plaintiffs' lawyers should not be further enabled in their "conquer and divide" methods by HB 0427.
