Judge rejects abuse suit request

A group of students who attended the Alberta School for the Deaf--but a Canadian judge says they can't file a class-action lawsuit. Two women and one man say they were physically and sexually abused by staff and other students at the Edmonton school. Even though lawyers say some 100 people have expressed interest in joining the lawsuit, the judge decided too much time had passed to grant the request. The attacks allegedly took place in before 1996, when the school discouraged the use of sign language.
