First male athlete sues Larry Nassar over alleged sexual abuse


Nassar has been imprisoned for the equivalent of several life sentences, and resignations followed at the USOC and USA Gymnastics, but Raisman isn't satisfied with either organization's response, naming both in the lawsuit that she hopes will uncover more details along with a congressional investigation.

Moore's sister, Kamerin - who is a former U.S. National Team gymnast - told a court room in January she and her brother were sexually abused by Nassar under the guise of medical treatment.

Former Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman sued the Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics team over allegedly mishandling Larry Nassar's abuse, according to a Friday statement announced Friday.

Two United States senators along with a group of about 30 former Olympians, athletes' representatives and child-advocacy experts called for Blackmun to resign following criticism of the USOC's handling of the abuse scandal involving Nassar, doctor for the USA gymnastics team.

The suit, which was filed in California, says USA Gymnastics and USOC endangered children and failed to live up to their stated mandate of protecting the athletes in their programs.

Moore is the latest in the 260-long list of people who claimed to have been abused by Nassar.

"After all this time, they remain unwilling to conduct a full investigation, and without a solid understanding of how this happened, it is delusional to think sufficient changes can be implemented", Raisman said. Meanwhile, thousands of young athletes continue to train and compete every day in this same broken system.

In addition to alleging sexual battery and harassment by Nassar, the suit also charges the USOC, USA Gymnastics, Penny, Parilla and others with negligent failure to warn, retention/hiring and supervision.

Nassar was sentenced in January and February in two separate hearings to 40 to 175 years and 40 to 125 years in prison. USA Gymnastics' new president Kerry Perry issued a statement on Thursday that addressed Nassar's abuse.

In the filing, Aly said the group was "aware, at the highest levels of the organization" of Nassar's abuse, but did nothing to stop the abuse, the Today Show reports.

"The senators called for Mr. Blackmun to leave his post after The Wall Street Journal reported that the committee did not intervene despite learning in 2015 from U.S.A. Gymnastics that gymnasts were victims of possible sexual misconduct by Dr. Nassar, a year before accusations became public", writes the New York Times.
