Ex-Cadets Drop Claims Against Church Entities

KSAL StaffOctober 24, 2013

Former cadets alleging abuse at St. John’s Military School have dropped their claims against two religious entities associated with the school.

Court documents filed this week show the former cadets from St. John’s Military School in Salina have agreed to dismiss the Episcopal Diocese of Western Kansas from their federal lawsuit. Also dropped as a defendant is the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America.

The dismissal stipulation is with prejudice, meaning the claims cannot be refiled. The filing does not indicate whether an out-of-court settlement had been reached.

St. John’s Military School remains the sole defendant.

The 11 former cadets allege the school encouraged higher-ranking students to discipline younger ones, leading to abuse.

Trial is set for March.
