Aveda is suing the university alleging that it failed to properly protect the student who was raped at a party in the 1980s.
The lawsuit filed Friday in U.S. District Court in New York alleges that the university failed to report the attack to law enforcement, which resulted in the rape and subsequent death of a 14-year-old boy who was then 14 years old.
The claim, filed in U to federal court in Manhattan, also accuses Avedas school of negligence, violation of the rights of victims and defendants, negligent misrepresentation, and negligence.
The sexual assault occurred at a New York City party in 1982, according to the lawsuit, which cites “incidents of other similar events, including similar types of parties and similar victims.”
The lawsuit is the latest in a series of claims by victims of sexual assault and other crimes at New York universities.
In October, a judge in California ordered the city’s schools to pay $15 million to more than 100 victims of sex crimes that took place at the University of California-Berkeley in the late 1970s.
