PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- A lawyer who has represented victims of sexual abuse in lawsuits against the Boy Scouts of America has published an index of decades worth of records from the Scouts' so-called perversion files.

Seattle attorney Tim Kosnoff posted the index on his website on Monday. It includes a list of 1,900 volunteers who were expelled from the organization between 1971 and 1991 for allegedly having inappropriate sexual contact with children. He has not released copies of the actual files.

The 1971-91 files were previously released in the 1990s by a California judge and have been written about by news organizations. Similar records created between 1966 and 1985 are expected to be released in the near future following a ruling by the Oregon Supreme Court.
