A former principal of De La Salle High School and a subordinate are accused of sexually molesting one of the Uptown school's students in the 1980s.

Officials say a lawsuit was filed against ex-principal Richard Langenstein and Robert Gandara over public abuse accusations stemming from their service at the school.

In the suit, the plaintiff, who attended De La Salle from 1981 to 1985, claims he was about 15 the first time Langenstein allegedly abused him in the principal's office.

From there, over the next two years, both Langenstein and Gandara are said to have fondled the boy's genitals and committed other acts of abuse, both at De La Salle and away from the campus during school-sponsored events.

In a statement Monday, De La Salle President Paul Kelly said he could not comment on a pending lawsuit.
