Soccer coach Bryan Duffey was severely injured in the explosion at the old school. He returned for the student assembly in 2017.

Lawsuits filed by several victims of a fatal explosion at Minnehaha Academy two years ago allege that CenterPoint Energy and contractor Master Mechanical were negligent in their handling of natural gas that led to the blast.

The lawsuits, filed Friday in Hennepin County District Court, assert that the "negligence and carelessness" of both companies directly caused bodily and emotional injuries to plaintiffs Bryan Duffey, Minnehaha Academy President Donna Harris, Dan Bowles, Joel Maart and Bonnie Anderson during the incident at the private school on Aug. 2, 2017.
