EXETER — Phillips Exeter Academy's attorneys have filed their response to a lawsuit from parents that say the prep school mishandled punishing their son who was accused of sexually assaulting another student.

The parents filed a lawsuit with Phillips Exeter Academy saying that school administrators told them that their son would be placed on "Dean's Leave" for one semester, but then could return in the fall. The administrators allegedly changed that decision, and three months later told the parents their son would not be allowed back to the school.

Attorneys from the academy said that all the school's procedures were followed correctly in the administration's response to the incident, Seacoastonline reported.

Discovery in the case is scheduled to be completed by Oct. 26, with a five-day trial tentatively scheduled for the week of Nov. 14.
