Ben Trane has now been named as a defendant in a wrong termination lawsuit filed against Midwest Academy.

Curtis Dial is representing Cheyenne Jerred in a lawsuit against Midwest Academy claiming that she was fired for coming forward about Trane sexually abusing a student at the boarding school.

Dial says the amendment added Ben Trane's name as a defendant and the person responsible for personnel decisions on the campus of the school, which is now closed.

Jerred claims in the lawsuit that she reported Trane had sexually assaulted and harassed one student on November 28th, 2015 and was then fired on December 5.

Dial says a third amendment has also been submitted to Midwest Twister as added defendant because they own the property in which Midwest Academy is located.
