VANCOUVER -- Former VANOC boss John Furlong filed responses in BC Supreme Court on Monday to deny civil claims alleging sexual abuse.

West's claim alleges while she was attending Immaculata Roman Catholic Elementary in Burns Lake, BC, in 1969 she was physically and sexually abused by Furlong, who served as CEO for Vancouver's hosting of the 2010 Olympic Games.
