Nineteen former students are suing a high school run by Yeshiva University, saying officials covered up decades of sexual abuse.
Their attorney says officials at Yeshiva University High School in Manhattan knew sexual abuse was happening there between 1969 and 1989 but did nothing to stop it.
The $380 million lawsuit says officials covered up the complaints because they feared they would damage the school's reputation and fundraising efforts.
The university's chancellor, Rabbi Norman Lamm, stepped down this month following criticism he failed to notify police when two teachers at the high school were accused of sex abuse in the 70's and 80's.
A spokesman for Yeshiva University said he could not comment on pending litigation.
