Suit Claims Widespread Abuse By Nuns At School For Deaf

BOSTON- A lawsuit alleges that nine former students at a former school for deaf children were raped and beaten by nuns at the now-defunct school.
Attorney Mitchell Garabedian said the plaintiffs name at least 15 nuns along with a priest and the athletic instructor at the Boston School for the Deaf, which closed more than a decade ago.
Garabedian said the abuse included fondling and rape. He said at least one student's head was submerged, face-first, in a toilet. He said others were locked in closets for hours as a form of punishment.
The suit alleges that the abuse occurred between 1944 and 1977.
The nuns named in the lawsuit are from the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Boston.
William Shaevel, an attorney for the school, said he had not yet seen the lawsuit or received details of the allegations.
