Ex-student files lawsuit against prep school

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A former New Hampshire boarding school student says the school violated her civil rights by failing to protect her from sexual assault.

The federal lawsuit was filed Friday and claims officials at St. Paul's School failed to report the sexual assault of a freshmen during the 2012-13 school year.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf a former student now living in Maryland. The student demands a trial and damages.

School board of trustees president Archibald Cox says the allegations are being taken seriously but it's unknown whether they're accurate. He says the school plans to cooperate with police and the state attorney general to investigate the matter.

The school settled a lawsuit in January with a former student who said it failed to protect her from being sexually assaulted.
