Yeshiva University Rocked as 6 More People Accuse School of Sex Abuse Cover-Up

New York - Within days of the announcement of a $380M lawsuit filed against Yeshiva University by 19 former high school students claiming a prolonged and massive cover-up of physical and sexual abuse by school officials, a lawyer representing six additional ex-students says his clients are prepared to file suit if current attempts to reach an out-of-court settlement continue to stall.

The JEWISH DAILY FORWARD Reports that Attorney Mike Reck, from the New York office of sexual-abuse specialists Jeff Anderson and Associates out of Minnesota, said that, while some of his clients were abused by Rabbi George Finkelstein when he was principal of Y.U.‘s boys high school in Manhattan between 1969 and the early 1980s, he has a female client who claims she was molested by Finkelstein in the 1990s, when he was dean of the Samuel Scheck Hillel Community Day School in North Miami Beach, Florida.

Reck said his client contends her molestation was the result of a failure on behalf of Y.U. officials to warn school officials in Florida that Finkelstein was a predatory threat to children.
