Lawsuit faults Boys Club in 1970s sexual abuse

July 17, 2019

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Attorneys have announced a second lawsuit against a local affiliate of the Boys and Girls Club of America that alleges it overlooked sexual abuse of a minor in the 1970s and 80s at the hands of a now-deceased local director.

Attorneys Brad Hall and Levi Monagle on Wednesday announced the lawsuit on behalf of an anonymous plaintiff who claims the Boys Club of Santa Fe failed to adequately supervise club director Luois Montaño as he sexually the minor.

Montaño directed the club for nearly 30 years and separately served as mayor of Santa Fe.

An attorney for the Santa Fe Boys and Girls Club could not be reached. The successor organization to the Boys Club of Santa Fe has denied similar accusations by another anonymous victim filed in April.
