A former Guam resident who now lives in North Carolina has filed a lawsuit alleging he and other Boy Scouts were paid to swim naked and be sexually abused by a priest in the mid-1970s.

B.G., 58, who used his initials to protect his identity, filed a lawsuit in the District Court of Guam against the Archdiocese of Agana, the Boy Scouts of America and retired priest, Louis Brouillard.

The complaint states that B.G. joined the Agana Boy Scouts troop when he was 14 and participated in various Boy Scout activities when Brouillard served as a scoutmaster and was also a priest for the Agana Archdiocese.

Brouillard allegedly swam completely naked and routinely instructed B.G. and the other boys to remove their clothes as the priest would grope and touch their private parts while they were swimming, the lawsuit states.
