A federal judge has tossed out a major lawsuit against Yeshiva University High School for Boys.

The suit claims at least 34 former students of the Manhattan institution were abused on school grounds, sometimes sexually, between 1971 and 1992 and that administrators ignored complaints about the alleged attacks.

The plaintiffs were seeking $380 million in damages.

The judge threw out the suit saying the statute of limitations had expired.

The lawsuit had been filed last summer when the plaintiffs learned school officials conspired to cover up alleged abuse.

An attorney for the plaintiffs says he will appeal the ruling.
