University of Michigan faces lawsuit claiming Bo Schembechler knew doctor was sexual predator
Despite that complaint and others against Anderson dating back years, Canham failed to take action, the lawsuit claims. FILE - This undated file photo provided by the Bentley Historical Library at the University of Michigan shows Dr. Robert E. Anderson. According to the lawsuit, Canham did not act and Anderson retained his position until his retirement in 2003. The lawsuit claims that the University of Michigan gave Anderson unfettered access to thousands of students and athletes, despite the fact that he was demoted in 1979 for sexually preying on students. Three law firms are representing the plaintiffs -- Estey & Bomberger, White Law PLLC, and The Simpson Tuegel Law Firm.
