School is out at Ribet Academy, and the students are not the only ones feeling relieved.

Unlike most private schools, Ribet Academy (pronounced rib-BAY) is a for-profit corporation, owned entirely by Ronald Sires--now in a protracted divorce--and the man he is suing for alleged embezzlement, Gerd Heymann.

A Los Angeles private school already being sued over an alleged sexual relationship between a coach and a student now faces a second lawsuit involving another former coach and a 16-year-old girl. The suit, filed last month on behalf of the student, who is now 20, alleges that Ribet Academy never should have hired Jrmirol Duncan as a basketball coach because he had previously been convicted of marijuana possession and violence against a former spouse.
