Parents sue Boy Scouts for $50 million

(HOUSTON CHRONICLE) A Sugar Land couple whose 10-year-old son died after getting hit by a golf cart on a camping trip are suing the Boy Scouts of America for $50 milion.

Mark and Melissa Evans filed the suit Jan. 14, 2013, in Harris County’s 129th State District Court, against the Boy Scouts of America, the organization’s Sam Houston Area Council and Sugar Land Baptist Troop 1845 — referred to collectively as the Boy Scout defendants.

The suit also named the golf cart driver at a state park and the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife as defendants. Parks and Wildlife was later dropped from the suit.
