Aly Raisman suing US Olympic Committee, USA Gymnastics over Nassar sexual abuse

Point of No Return — Strong women, not a sleazy rat, steal the show
USA Gymnastics has said it did not know about Nassar's misconduct and that it did not act on the allegations because it deferred to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but the lawsuit makes reference to members of the organization complaining about the doctor's taking pictures of the girls, and alleges officials should have known what was going on and taken action. 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. The suit also offers damning details, such as an allegation that that even with a United States of America gymnastics trainer present in the room, Nassar would penetrate girls with bare hands, saying it was for therapy purposes-and sometimes he had an erection.
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. The former USA Gymnastics team doctor was jailed earlier this year for abusing athletes under the guise of medical treatment.
The Karolyi Ranch was a USOC Training Site and USA Gymnastics National Team Training Center at the time of the alleged abuse.
Nassar was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison after having been found to have sexually harassed more than a hundred young women.
The Nassar scandal prompted the entire board of directors at USA Gymnastics to resign, along with the president and athletic director at Michigan State University, where Nassar also worked.
Moore is the latest in the 260-long list of people who claimed to have been abused by Nassar. "This is what we're doing to to change.'" USA Gymnastics had said they wanted to work with Raisman to address issues of assault, but they had been criticized for working too slowly.
Aly's filing comes just days after the U.S. Olympic Committee announced chief executive Scott Blackmun was stepping down due to his struggle with prostate cancer, NBC News reports. Raisman said the USOC and USA Gymnastics allowed Nassar to continue abusing athletes by not telling the university about the conduct that led them to fire him.
The Olympic gymnast is taking legal action.
The USOC and USA Gymnastics, the suit said, "Failed to implement reasonable safeguards to avoid acts of unlawful sexual conduct by (Nassar) in the future, including avoiding placement of Nassar in a position where contact and interaction with children is an inherent function".
