Cover up at deaf school?

Parents of students who attend a state school are suing because administrators allegedly covered up the sexual abuse of five children by a teen at the school. The former principal of the Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind says its not true. The school kept records but did not report the assaults to law enforcement as required by law, according to police. Another student admitted assaulting other students to school officials in 2011. Lawyers for former principal Louis Tutt appeared in court for a hearing yesterday (Thursday), asking that the lawsuit be thrown out, claiming their client has immunity as a state employee. An arrest warrant has been issued for Tutt who is not in the state.
