Lawsuit: sex abuse at deaf school

A lawsuit filed against the Oregon School for the Deaf claims a child was abused while under supervision of the facility--and administrators failed to stop it. The mother of a former student wants $4 million from the Salem, Oregon school because, according to the suit, her daughter engaged in sexual relations with an older teenage boy more than once while she was 11 years old. The next court date for the complaint is scheduled for mid-November. The Statesman-Journal has more details here.
