http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/.a/6a00d8341c630a53ef01310f827e97970c-800wiThe family of a student who had a sexual affair with a Burbank Unified middle school teacher has filed a lawsuit against her husband, a Los Angeles police officer, claiming he threatened to kill the teenager.

The family also accuses the LAPD and the city of Los Angeles of failing to investigate or take any disciplinary action after receiving complaints of his conduct, according to the complaint.

In March, Amy Beck, a sixth-grade teacher at Jordan Middle School, turned herself in to police for having sex with her then-14-year-old student, who has not been identified. Amy Beck is now serving a two-year prison sentence.

An earlier lawsuit the family filed against the school district was dismissed.
