A New York court has tossed out a $380 million lawsuit claiming at least 34 ex-students of Yeshiva University High School for Boys were abused, some sexually, from 1971 to 1992.
The school acknowledged sex abuse that occurred in the 1960s and has apologized to victims. It says the perpetrator was an unidentified, now-deceased former employee who “had a role in teaching.”
The Horace Mann Action Coalition have hired former judge and sex crimes prosecutor Leslie Crocker Snyder to conduct an independent probe of alleged sexual abuse at the elite New York City school.
In a letter posted to the school’s website, the Board of Trustees said the school is working to reaffirm no current student has been subject to abuse.
