NORTH ANDOVER (CBS) — A private school in North Andover is being sued by a former student.

The student claims he was sexually abused by a teacher in the late 70’s and the school did nothing to stop it.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Bernice Corpuz reports

“It impacted me substantially,” the man, who is not being identified, said.

He says the woman pursued him and when other school staff members caught them, they did not intervene.

The man says since then, he has struggled with substance abuse.

WBZ reached out to the Brooks School.

A spokesperson says the school is unaware of the suit.

They did say they intend to release a statement as soon as they have more information about the complaint.
