SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Another classmate of the 15-year-old girl who killed herself after being sexually abused while passed out by three teen boys has been added to the families' lawsuit.

On June 21, lawyer Robert Allard added a 15-year-old girl who was present during the alleged assault.

Eight days after the attack, Pott's hanged herself at her mother's Los Gatos home

Michael Penuen and Sheila Penuen, the parents of a friend where the party was held, are also being sued by Audrie's family. A women answering the phone Saturday morning declined comment.
