Judge allows dig at school for evidence of child pornography

SALISBURY, Conn. (AP) — A federal judge is allowing attorneys suing a private school in Salisbury to dig for possible evidence of child pornography.

Attorneys for a former Indian Mountain School student were recently granted up to six hours to conduct the dig on school grounds, the Hartford Courant reported Wednesday. The date of the dig was not specified in the order signed by U.S. District Judge Warren W. Eginton earlier this month.

William Brewster Brownville, the former student, filed a lawsuit in 2014 alleging a former headmaster sexually assaulted him during the 1980s. Several other lawsuits alleging abuse have been filed.

A message was left seeking comment with the school’s attorney.

Indian Mountain School is a private boarding and day school for students in pre-kindergarten through the ninth grade.
