Man files sex abuse lawsuit against Pike, Groton prep schools

A man has filed a lawsuit against two prestigious prep schools in Massachusetts and a woman who taught at one of them, contending that the schools were negligent in failing to stop the sexual assaults she allegedly committed on the victim in the 1990s.

In the lawsuit filed Wednesday, the man, who is now 34, says that Judith Elefante, a former Latin teacher at the Pike School in Andover, began an abusive relationship with him while he was in middle school there and started having sex with him when he was a 15-year-old sophomore at the ­Groton School.
