Report: YU failed to respond to sex abuse allegations

 

(JNS.org) The findings of an investigation commissioned by Yeshiva University (YU) said the school lacked an “appropriate response” to multiple sex abuse allegations before 2001. “The investigative team found that, up until 2001, there were multiple instances in which the university either failed to appropriately act to protect the safety of its students or did not respond to the allegations at all,” stated a newly released report by the law firm Sullivan & Cromwell LLP, the New York Daily News reported. Thirty-one plaintiffs, all former students of Yeshiva University High School, have filed a $380 million lawsuit against YU.

“I express my deepest and most heartfelt remorse, and truly hope that our recognition of these issues provides some level of comfort and closure to the victims,” stated YU President Richard Joel wrote.”
