The Michigan State University Board of Trustees is asking the state Attorney General to investigate the events surrounding the wide-ranging sexual abuse case of former doctor Larry Nassar.
“The testimony of Nassar’s victims this week made many of us, including me, listen to the survivors and the community in a different way. It is clear to the Board and me that a review by the Attorney General’s Office can provide the answers people need. As I told the Attorney General in December, MSU will fully cooperate with any inquiry by law enforcement authorities. I hope this review will help the survivors and the entire MSU community heal and move forward," University president Lou Anna K. Simon said in a statement.
Michigan AG Bill Schuette has agreed to investigate:
"A full and complete review, report and recommendation of what occurred at Michigan State University is required and I will provide that. However, this week and the coming weeks are time for the survivors of Larry Nassar to have their day in court, and I refuse to upstage their time for healing."
The student paper at the university called for Simon's resignation on Thursday.
