SULLIVAN COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A local school corporation denies doing anything wrong after being sued by two students.

On Friday, we first told you that two sisters filed a federal lawsuit against the Northeast School Corporation in Sullivan County.

They both attended North Central High School.

One of the sisters said she was raped.

Both sisters said they became victims of bullying due to the situation.

The federal lawsuit alleges the school didn't do enough to respond.

The Northeast School Corporation sent News 10 a statement on Monday.

It reads in part:

"The school corporation denies all allegations that engaged in wrongdoing of any kind."

The superintendent told us school leaders will not comment further at this time for privacy reasons.
