Two former students of Damien Memorial School in Honolulu are suing one of their former teachers for sexually abusing them while they were high school students in the 1980s.

The lawsuit names Brother Robert Brouillette and seeks unspecified damages. It also names the school and the Catholic diocese of Honolulu for allegedly allowing Brouillette to abuse the boys.

A lawsuit was filed in state court in Honolulu Wednesday under a new state law providing a two-year window for sexual abuse claims involving minors even if the statute of limitations expired.

The Missouri sex offender registry lists Brouillette as living near St. Louis. He couldn't be reached for comment.

Damien President Bernard Ho said through a spokesman he hasn't seen the lawsuit and can't comment. The Honolulu diocese declined to comment.
