Michigan State to Pay $500M in Settlements to Larry Nassar Victims
Michigan State $500M Larry Nassar settlement: Who will pay?
17 May, 2018, 00:40
Michigan State University says it has reached a $500 million settlement with hundreds of women and girls who say they were sexually assaulted by sports doctor Larry Nassar in the worst sex-abuse case in sports history.
The terms of the settlement include $425 million paid to current claimants, and $75 million set aside in a trust fund to protect "any future claimants alleging sexual abuse by Larry Nassar", according to John Manly, an attorney representing some of the victims.
"Michigan State is pleased that we have been able to agree in principle on a settlement that is fair to the survivors of Nassar's crimes", said Robert Young, special counsel to MSU. It does not address claims against US gymnastics, the United States Olympic Committee, Bela and Martha Karolyi, Twistars, John Geddert or any other parties.
The suits claim that the other defendants had opportunities to put an end to Nassar's abuse and failed to do so, and that those organizations were accountable for allowing the former doctor to sexually abuse women for over 20 years.
Nassar, 54, faces up to 175 years in MI state prison for criminal sexual conduct after more than 200 victims came forward at his sentencing hearings in January. Those are the 332 sexual abuse survivors of Nassar. Any suggestion that the university engaged in a coverup is "simply false", a school statement said. John Engler, the former MI governor, was named the interim president by the board of trustees. The university was reportedly warned about Nassar's behavior as early as 1992, but the school continued to employ him. Strampel has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
