A federal judge Thursday tossed out the $680 million sexual abuse lawsuit brought by 34 former Yeshiva University prep school students against the Washington Heights institution.
Manhattan Federal Judge John Koeltl said the claims in the lawsuit are barred by statutes of limitation because the alleged incidents of abuse by Yeshiva University High School for Boys staff members occurred several decades ago.
“My clients are men who have been suffering for years,” fumed Kevin Mulhearn, lawyer for the plaintiffs. “They deserve justice, not this perversion of justice.”
Yeshiva University didn’t immediately return a request for comment Thursday.
Mulhearn said the plaintiffs will “prosecute a vigorous and effective appeal.”
