A second Utah teenager has filed a federal lawsuit against an imprisoned former Davis High School English teacher, the school and officials over her sexual contact with underage students.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the lawsuit says school officials should have known that 36-year-old Brianne Altice had inappropriate relationships with minors before she was hired as a teacher. The lawsuit seeks unspecified monetary damages.
The complaint filed Monday also says school officials failed to act when they and teachers suspected Altice was behaving inappropriately.
Altice is serving at least two years in prison after pleading guilty to sexual abuse charges stemming from allegations that she had sex with 16-and-17-year-old students in 2013.
The Utah Attorney General’s office has been defending the school district against lawsuits. The office declined to comment.
