SAN JOSE - Audrie Pott thought everybody at her high school knew what happened that night. The 15-year-old had been drinking during a Labor Day weekend party at a friend's house in the pricey Silicon Valley suburb of Saratoga. She either fell asleep or passed out. And she woke up to something her family's lawyer described as "unimaginable. " "There were some markings on her body, in some sort of permanent marker, indicating that someone had violated her when she was sleeping," attorney Robert Allard said Monday.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The family of a Saratoga High School student who killed herself after allegedly being sexually assaulted at a party has filed a claim against the Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District over the way school officials handled events surrounding the teen's death.
