News Articles and Press Conferences
10/04/17 East Lansing, MI – News Article
Michigan State University is paying a ton of money for some of the best lawyers in the country. Their job? Investigate how a former MSU sports doctor, Larry Nassar, could allegedly abuse dozens of young patients for years – and whether anybody at MSU knew about it.
They’re conducting “hundreds of interviews,” reviewing documents and emails, and taking what they find directly to the Board of Trustees.
MSU says administrators are actively using those findings to make the campus safer, roll out new policies, and defend the university in civil lawsuits brought by Nassar’s alleged victims.
But the school says the review was “never designed to end in a report,” and that there is currently no plan to release the findings in a report to the public.

Blog Posts from Church Wyble Regarding the Dr. Larry Nassar Sexual Abuse Case
By Mick S. Grewal Sr In civil litigation, alleged victims outline sexual penetration disguised as treatment. While there are treatments that involve intravaginal manipulation, the American Osteopathic Academy describes those as “rare.” In those rare instances when the procedure is used, Dr. Mark Cantieri of the Indiana Osteopathic Association listed several “widely accepted standards” including: What the procedure involves should be explained to the patient and, in the case of a juvenile, the parent or guardian. And prior permission should be [...]
By David Mittleman So far today, 2 former Penn State University administrators pleaded guilty to child endangerment. Ex-Athletic Director Tim Curley and former University Vice President Gary Schultz. They along with former President Graham Spanier were scheduled for a criminal trial next week, with jury selection to begin on March 20. Political maneuvering has kept this matter unresolved for over 4 years. The 3 were involved with handling a 2001 complaint by a graduate assistant who said he saw a retired [...]
By David Mittleman “Could Lawrence Nassar have been prevented from assaulting dozens of athletes?” -Lauren Green, Sports Illustrated, March 3, 2017 The answer is “yes,” it's not even debatable. At the request of the Indianapolis Star, a judge released more than 5,600 pages last Friday detailing how USA Gymnastics handled sexual abuse allegations against coaches over a 10-year period of time. The records, including sworn testimony, revealed some coaches weren't banned from the sport until years after they were convicted of [...]
By David Mittleman Last night, nationally renowned TV news magazine show “60 Minutes” featured former MSU doctor Larry Nassar's involvement with USA Gymnastics. Nassar made a name for himself “treating” high level athletes, including Olympians. USA Gymnastics claims to have contacted the FBI in 2015 after receiving a complaint from an athlete, albeit 5 weeks after receiving the complaint. Apparently, USA Gymnastics failed to inform Michigan State University. Based on court filings, including complaints we have filed on behalf of the [...]
By David Mittleman As more and more former patients of Larry Nassar step forward with stories that, by now, are all too familiar, Michigan State University finds itself facing maybe the most important question in its 162 year history: https://mobile.twitter.com/cate_hannum/status/832445024918974464/photo/1 Where is the integrity? As the investigation continues by MSU's own police department, the FBI is ramping up its inquiry into the allegations against Nassar. Review by an outside agency is an important step in ensuring a fair evaluation of the [...]
I shudder to think where else has this happened at MSU and any other institution across the country. How many futures have been damaged due to a lack of respect and a break of this trust? This is a question that will go unanswered. I can only hope that as a result of this, women who come forward in matters of sexual assault will be taken seriously and treated with compassion and respect. By coming forward woman, through many voices, you can make MSU do the right thing and listen. Something they failed to do when a single individual voice was silenced. This is your empowerment.
