Sex abuse suit against NH special ed school moves forward

The Associated Press

NORTHFIELD (AP) — The parents of a 13-year-old are moving forward with an amended lawsuit alleging a special education school in New Hampshire failed to prevent a female student from sexually assaulting their son.

The Concord Monitor reports that the parents dropped several negligence claims and amended the suit to focus on how the Spaulding Youth Center allegedly wronged their son.

Their decision comes after the Northfield school filed motions to dismiss some of the suit's claims.

The parents say the autistic boy reported several incidents of sexual harassment to employees at the school in 2015. But they say school officials didn't adequately intervene or notify them of the claims.

Spaulding denies that it failed to communicate with the boy's parents about the alleged harassment.

A trial date is projected for October 2017.
