Lawsuit claims Kamehameha Schools' psychiatrist molested 26


HONOLULU (AP) — Twenty-six former students alleged in a lawsuit filed Tuesday that they were repeatedly sexually abused by a now-deceased psychiatrist at a private school for Native Hawaiians.

The plaintiffs are suing Kamehameha Schools and the estate of psychiatrist Robert Browne, who they say molested them during therapy sessions between 1958 and 1985. Kamehameha Schools required each student to undergo therapy, took them to Browne's office and paid for the services, according to the lawsuit.

Kamehameha Schools has known about the allegations for the last 25 years but failed to respond or investigate them, the lawsuit said.
