ORADELL, N.J. — A picketer carrying a sign accusing Bergen Catholic High School of ignoring sex abuse victims has been lingering outside of the Oradell school Wednesday and Thursday mornings.

The man carried signs at the corner of Oradell and Forest avenues saying "BCHS IGNORES VICTIMS" and "TEN SEX VICTIMS AWAIT JUSTICE."

NOTE: It is unclear if the man is claiming he is a victim. Daily Voice is gathering more information.

Nearly one year ago to the day, the all-boys high school reached a settlement with 21 men who accused staff of sex abuse in the 1960s and 1970s. The victims shared the $1.9 million settlement money, NJ.com reported.

The following October, eight more men came forward also claiming sex abuse at the school.
