John Dunford is pictured recently at his west Hamilton home. Dunford has filed a $2.8-million lawsuit against Hamilton Health Sciences (HHS), arguing that HHS should be liable for two alleged sexual assaults by Dr. James Anderson against him in February 1983, when Dunford was a student of Anderson’s at Cool School, an alternative education program for teens. Anderson died in 1995.
