New Abuse Claims Surface at Salina Military School

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — More allegations of abuse at a Salina military boarding school been raised by parents of former cadets from California, Colorado and Texas.  Officials of St. John's Military School in Salina strongly deny the claims.  A motion filed Tuesday in federal court in Wichita seeks to add four more plaintiffs to the federal case against the school. The families also want to amend the lawsuit to add the school's president as a defendant, and to add a claim that evidence was destroyed after the lawsuit was originally filed.  St. John's issued a three-page statement Wednesday denying the latest allegations of abuse. The school also says claims that it destroyed evidence are false.  St. John's also argues that federal law prevents its president from being personally named in a civil lawsuit.
