Endicott, N.Y. – A lawsuit has been filed against the Boys & Girls Club of Western Broome alleging a former swim instructor, Gerald Berg, sexually abused a 14-year old boy at the club between the years of 1975 and 1977.

Filed on August 16, 2019, the lawsuit comes after the passage of the Child Victims Act, which provides a one-year window for filing old civil claims for child sexual abuse in New York with no age or time limit.
