7 ex-Poly Prep students sue school
Some former students of Poly Prep Country Day School have filed a lawsuit accusing the school administration of ignoring sexual abuse.
The seven students claim some former and current headmasters did nothing to stop former football coach Philip Foglietta from abusing "dozens, if not hundreds" of boys at the school.
According to the lawsuit, the school leadership was aware of the coach's actions for decades, but condoned his behavior because he was a successful coach.
The first accusations of abuse surfaced in 2005. Foglietta died in 1998.
