ANNAPOLIS, MD - Another four child sexual abuse lawsuits were filed against the Key School in Annapolis, The Baltimore Sun reported Tuesday. The Sun said there are now at least six such suits against the private school.

The Sun reported that the lawsuits, all filed by women in their 60s, allege that male faculty members groomed and repeatedly sexually assaulted the victims when they were students in the 1970s. The Key School hired a law firm to conduct an eight-month investigation that in 2019 found that 10 adult employees had inappropriate relations with at least 16 students from the 1970s through the 1990s, The Sun said.

“What happened to us is permanently damaging,” one survivor said in a statement through her attorneys, The Sun reported. “In a K-12 school, adults are responsible for students’ well-being as minors. Instead, this level of abuse has instilled ongoing trauma, which is incomprehensible to anyone who did not experience it.”
