Judge Tena Campbell – Scouts settle fire suit for $6.5 million

The U.S. Attorney’s Office announced yesterday it has settled its case against the Boy Scouts of America concerning a wildfire that scorched more than 14,000 acres in the Uintah Mountains in June 2002.

Although the U.S. Attorney’s Office previously claimed the damages were in excess of $12 million, the parties ultimately settled for $6.5 million.

The best lesson learned in this case was how not to put out a fire.
