    The New Hampshire prep school at the center of a sex assault case is demanding that a federal court release the victim's name.

    Owen Labrie was found guilty of misdemeanor sexual assault and other charges. Now, St. Paul's School is being sued on allegations that it did not do enough to protect its students.

    In its filing, St. Paul's argues that the family is "hiding behind anonymity" to attack the school's reputation.
