Gymnasts ask Congress to dissolve U.S. Olympic Committee over Nassar scandal (detroitnews.com)

Washington — Four world-class gymnasts are asking Congress to dissolve the the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee over the organization's mishandling of the Larry Nassar sexual abuse scandal.

In a letter to two U.S. senators, Olympic gymnasts Simone Biles, Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney and NCAA gymnast Maggie Nichols said they are making the request after "years of patience, deliberation and unrequited commitment to learn from our suffering and make amateur sports safe for future generations."

"We believe the board's past actions demonstrate an unwillingness to confront the endemic problems with abuse that athletes like us have faced and a continued refusal to pursue true and necessary reform of the broken Olympic system," they wrote...

Court vacates conviction of former MSU gymnastics coach Kathie Klages (detroitnews.com)

The Michigan Court of Appeals on Tuesday vacated the conviction of former Michigan State University gymnastic coach Kathie Klages for lying to police after concluding her statements about not remembering a 1997 conversation were not material to a criminal investigation.

Klages was found guilty by a jury in February 2020 of two counts of lying to a peace officer during the 2018 investigation into the sexual assaults committed over decades by former MSU and USAG doctor Larry Nassar. Two gymnasts testified they told Klages about Nassar's abuse in 1997...

Court upholds dismissal of charges against MSU's Simon, calls investigation a 'sham' (detroitnews.com)

An appellate panel Tuesday upheld 3-0 the dismissal of charges against former Michigan State University President Lou Anna Simon, with one justice calling the investigation into Simon following the Larry Nassar scandal a "sham."

The attorney general's office provided no evidence that Simon knew the details of a complaint against Nassar in 2014, the appellate panel said, so it's difficult to conclude she lied to police in 2018 when she told them she knew an MSU sports medicine doctor was "under review" but knew "nothing of substance" beyond that.

The brief majority decision was accompanied by a fiery concurrence from Judge Elizabeth Gleicher, an appointee of Democratic former Gov. Jennifer Granholm...

13 Nassar victims seeking $130M from FBI over bungled probe (clickondetroit.com)

DETROIT – Thirteen sexual assault victims of Larry Nassar are seeking $10 million each from the FBI, claiming a bungled investigation by agents led to more abuse by the sports doctor, lawyers said Thursday.

It's an effort to make the government responsible for assaults that occurred after 2015. The Justice Department’s inspector general concluded last year that the FBI made fundamental errors when it became aware of allegations against Nassar that year.

Nassar was a Michigan State University sports doctor as well as a doctor at USA Gymnastics. He is serving decades in prison for assaulting female athletes, including medal-winning Olympic gymnasts.

“We spend so much energy and resources encouraging children to come forward when they have been abused," attorney Jamie White said. "So the fact that people came forward to the most powerful law enforcement agency in the world and were rebuffed — it’s a slap in the face.”...

Two former FBI agents accused of mishandling sex-abuse allegations against former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar will not be charged with a crime, the Justice Department announced Thursday.

In a statement, officials said after a "careful re-review of evidence," the department "is adhering to its prior decision not to bring federal criminal charges," adding: "This does not in any way reflect a view that the investigation of Nassar was handled as it should have been, nor in any way reflects approval or disregard of the conduct of the former agents."

The decision marks the third time that federal prosecutors examined whether a senior FBI official and a case agent should be charged with lying about their work on the Nassar case. Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco opened the review after several world-famous gymnasts in September gave tearful testimony to Congress, describing in horrifying detail the abuse they endured and their incredulity over the FBI's decision not to further investigate Nassar after the allegations against him first surfaced...

Alleging the FBI mishandled its investigation into sexual abuse allegations against Michigan State University sports doctor Larry Nassar, some of gymnastics’ biggest names have filed claims seeking more than $1 billion against the bureau, attorneys announced Wednesday.

Dozens of women, including world-renowned athletes such as Simone Biles, allege they were among those assaulted “due to the FBI’s failure to take required steps to protect them,” their lawyers said in a statement Wednesday.

Along with Biles, the Nassar victims filing the latest claims include Olympic gymnasts Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney as well as NCAA gymnast Maggie Nichols.

They join a group of victims who filed administrative claims under the Federal Tort Claim Act in April...

A group representing 90 young women — including U.S. Olympic team gymnasts Simone Biles, McKayla Maroney and Aly Raisman — filed federal tort claims against the FBI on Wednesday, seeking more than $1 billion in damages for the bureau’s mishandling of its investigation into sexual abuse by former U.S. Olympic team doctor Larry Nassar.

The majority of the claimants say Nassar abused them after his abuse was reported to the FBI in 2015, during a yearlong period in which no meaningful investigative action was taken and Nassar continued to sexually abuse young women and children. Many are athletes who were associated with the USA Gymnastics program or with Michigan State University, where Nassar maintained a clinic.

The Justice Department announced just before the Memorial Day weekend that the individual FBI agents whom the inspector general identified as responsible for the failure of the investigation — and for subsequent attempts to mislead investigators for the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General — would not face charges...

DETROIT – The Michigan Supreme Court on Friday rejected a final appeal from sports doctor Larry Nassar, who was sentenced to decades in prison for sexually assaulting gymnasts, including Olympic medalists.

Attorneys for Nassar said he was treated unfairly in 2018 and deserved a new hearing, based on vengeful remarks by a judge who called him a “monster” who would “wither” in prison like the wicked witch in “The Wizard of Oz.”...

The Michigan Supreme Court on Friday rejected hearing an appeal from serial sex offender Larry Nassar, concluding that the case presented a "close question" regarding the conduct of Ingham County Circuit Judge Rosemarie Aquilina during his sentencing.

"I just signed your death warrant," Aquilina said at sentencing in January 2018.

"We are not persuaded that the questions presented should be reviewed by this court," according to the high court's opinion...
