WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Former cadets at a Kansas military school are asking a federal judge to impose monetary sanctions and to order the school to release information they contend would establish a pattern of abuse.

The filing Tuesday came in the lawsuit by 11 students and their families against St. John's Military School in Salina. The lawsuit contends the practice of giving higher ranking cadets the power to discipline others encourages physical and mental abuse. St. John's has vehemently denied a culture of abuse exists.

The plaintiffs contend the school has repeatedly refused to provide information on similar incidents, internal documents and financial information.

St. John's has argued some of the information sought is irrelevant or subject to confidentiality laws.
