Michigan State reportedly reaches $500 million settlement with victims of Larry Nassar

As a result of today's agreement between the attorneys representing 332 claimants and representatives from Michigan State, $425 million will be distributed to claimants who are now part of the lawsuits. Since then, nearly 300 women and girls have publicly accused Nassar of abuse, and almost all during medical appointments.

"It is the honest hope of all of the survivors that the legacy of this settlement will be far-reaching institutional reform that will end the threat of sexual assault in sports, schools and throughout our society".

Rachael Denhollander was the first woman to come forward and accuse Nassar of abuse, and is seen by many of his victims as the reason they came forward, too.

Michigan State University announced Wednesday it has agreed to a $500 million (€424 million) settlement with hundreds of former victims Larry Nassar.

Nassar worked at MSU and USA Gymnastics for decades. The victims certainly deserve this, given how Michigan State contributed to enabling Nassar, including the various alleged instances where school officials didn't believe accusations. She says she is also disappointed that a resolution hasn't been reached with other organizations such as USA Gymnastics.

And she is renewing her call for MI lawmakers to enact legislation that would retroactively extend the time limit for victims of childhood sexual abuse to sue.

"The litigation phase is over, but the fight for change and accountability, the fight to give survivors a voice and protect the next generation, has only just begun", she said in a statement.

In addition to Nassar's role with Michigan State, he also served as a USA Gymnastics doctor.

At Nassar's sentencing hearing in January, Lemke had harshly criticized MSU, saying: "Michigan State University, shame on you...."

"We recognise the need for change on our campus and in our community around sexual assault awareness and prevention" he continued. He is serving sentences that will likely keep him in prison for life.

The deal was introduced Wednesday by Michigan State and legal professionals for 332 victims.

Nassar pleaded guilty to assaulting victims with his hands under the guise of treatment.

Nassar was sentenced to 60 years in prison on the child porn charges, and up to 175 years on sex abuse charges. Nassar treated campus athletes and young gymnasts at his Michigan State office. He had a global repute whereas working on the identical time for USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians.

Olympic gold medalists Aly Raisman, Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas and McKayla Maroney have all identified themselves as victims of Nassar's abuse.
