A second lawsuit has been filed against an exclusive Connecticut boarding school where a former dean has been charged with molesting three students.Dean of Students Richard Reinhardt of Telford, Pa. was fired from The Gunnery in June after allegations surfaced that he abused boys there.The family of one former student sued Reinhardt and the school last week over what it says were "repeated" abuses by the 44-year-old dean.Susan Smith, a lawyer for another student, filed a similar lawsuit Thursday. It names only the school as a defendant and includes graphic descriptions of the alleged abuse.Reinhardt, who denies the allegations, was arraigned earlier this month on charges including sexual assault and risk of injury to minors.
