Judge: University of Michigan must tell alumni about doctor abuse lawsuits
ANN ARBOR, Mich. A judge has ordered the University of Michigan to inform alumni about a class-action lawsuit against the school over sexual abuse by a longtime campus doctor. U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts intervened after lawyers argued that the university shouldn't be communicating with people who could become plaintiffs in the case. The university must follow up and tell people that participation with WilmerHale is voluntary and that lawsuits are pending in federal court in Detroit. Roberts said WilmerHale can't share any work with a separate team of lawyers that is defending the university. But at the same time the school is seeking to have lawsuits dismissed because too many years have passed.
