Anderson says they all played a role in planning and publishing over 60 false allegations of sexual assault against him.

It comes months after two separate investigations failed to find any evidence to support the claims, although they did reveal that he had acted in an inappropriate manner.

Anderson says the investigation cost him countless job opportunities, fear over the safety of his family and that it hurt the work of Denver Public Schools.
