Olympian Aly Raisman Sues US Olympic Committee Over Larry Nassar Abuse

Aly Raisman Sues The US Olympic Committee And USA Gymnastics Over Nassar Abuse

The filing alleges negligence by the USOC and USA Gymnastics for failing to make sure appropriate protocols were followed in regards to monitoring Larry Nassar. Nassar regularly invited patients to visit him after business hours in the basement of his home if they needed help with injuries, according to women in the lawsuit. USA Gymnastics, the sport's US governing body, had no immediate comment.

USA Gymnastics said that it informed the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the doctor in July 2015 after a complaint from a member of the national team, though the U.S. Olympic Committee says it did not know about allegations until 2016 when one victim went public in the Indianapolis Star. She is one of the most decorated gymnasts in US history with a total of six Olympic medals, two team golds at world championships and 13 national championship medals.

The complaints said that Nassar sexually abused Raisman, two-time Olympian who won medals in London and Rio de Janeiro, at the Karolyi Ranch in Texas, national and worldwide competitions and the 2012 London Olympics.

Following the sentencing, the entire board of USA Gymnastics resigned under pressure from the USOC.

Police rushed to Tori Spelling's home after a frantic caller dialed 911
It's worth noting that Spelling herself called the police the night before when she thought someone was breaking into her home. In September, Spelling's mother, Candy Spelling , expressed the wish that her daughter would realize that five kids is enough.

Nassar, who served as the Michigan State University, U.S. National Women's Gymnastics Team and U.S. Olympic team doctor for two decades, pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges and 10 counts of criminal sexual conduct in Michigan state courts. Nassar is behind bars after receiving prison sentences of up to hundreds of years.

Former Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar appears in court for his final sentencing phase in Eaton County Circuit Court, Feb. 5, 2018 in Charlotte, Michigan. Raisman was one of 156 survivors of Nassar's abuse who testified at a January sentencing hearing for the physician in MI.

"To this day, Aly Raisman continues to suffer depression, anxiety and fear stemming from her abuse by defendant Nassar, which affects her daily life", the lawsuit said.

In a statement on Friday, Raisman explained why she believes her lawsuit is necessary to achieve justice, saying, "It has become painfully clear that these organizations have no intention of properly addressing this problem".

Brighter path available for North Korea if it chooses denuclearisation
The delegation, which included North Korea leader Kim Jong Un's sister, Kim Yo Jong, held talks with the leadership of the South. Trump noted Pyongyang's willingness to talk, but didn't say the US would accept the offer.

The USOC statement did not address whether the sex abuse scandal played a role in Blackmun's departure.

During the sentencing hearings, gymnasts described their ordeal while being treated by Nassar, who was known as the go-to doctor for Olympic gymnasts.

USA Gymnastics and the USOC broke their stated mandates to protect children in their programs by not revealing Nassar's past misconduct to athletes and their parents or guardians, the lawsuit said.
