CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A 42-year-old man has filed the third of what is expected to be many individual lawsuits over abuse at New Hampshire’s youth detention center.

The man is identified as John Doe and is suing the Sununu Youth Services Center in Manchester and four of 11 former staffers who were arrested in April. It’s the third lawsuit against the center, and the second since a judge denied a class action earlier this year. An attorney for defendant Stephen Murphy called the lawsuit frivolous.

An attorney for Frank Davis says his client maintains his innocence. Other defendants did not respond to requests for comments.
