Eight more students are coming forward alleging abuse at the now closed Mount Bachelor Academy near Prineville. The initial suit was filed in July with 9 students; now 8 more have joined bringing the total plaintiffs to 17. They are asking for $25.5 million in damages. The suit alleges emotional, physical and sexual abuse.

Attorney Kelly Clark, who is known for successfully suing the Boy Scouts, says this case if different because the alleged abuse is deliberately built into the program.  “That's what makes this so troubling; that somebody thought that this kind of approach, which is way, way over the top from tough love. But we're not even in the same universe, but somebody thought that this made sense, that's what's so baffling about this.” Meantime, the attorney for the school says the allegations are untrue and that the program helped hundred's of students. Attorney Greg Chaimov also says that Mount Bachelor Academy was a licensed and accredited program that helped troubled teens with serious behavioral issues who could not otherwise be successful at home in school or in life.
