Brothers Sue Delbarton over Alleged Sexual Abuse

Two brothers who grew up on the campus of the Delbarton School where their father was a teacher filed a lawsuit Tuesday, claiming the Catholic school and St. Mary’s Abbey failed to stop alleged sexual abuse.
The brothers, listed in the suit only by the initials “T.C” and “W.C.,” claim they were sexually abused by Rev. Luke Travers, who served as Delbarton headmaster from 1999 to 2007, and was removed last year from an administrative post of a Virginia Catholic school when other allegations of sexual abuse surfaced, and the Rev. Justin Caputo, who until recently was assigned to Notre Dame of Mt. Carmel Parish in Cedar Knolls.
Travers and Caputo are under strict restrictions at St. Mary’s, which means they are accompanied by a fellow priest everywhere they travel and can have no contact with students.
