He said his firm has spoken to multiple medical officials who say they are no nerves in the pubic area that relate to anything in the low back. “There is no medical explanation to put acupuncture in the pubic area,” Grewal said.

Blog Posts from Church Wyble Regarding the Dr. Larry Nassar Sexual Abuse Case
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.
By David Mittleman As of the writing of this blog, 26 women are suing MSU and its former employee Larry Nassar. That number is certain to grow in the coming days and weeks. The complaints allege that Nassar assaulted girls and young women under the guise of medical treatment, and did so for two decades while MSU looked the other way. The allegations are similar in many ways to the Jerry Sandusky scandal at Penn State. But while the Penn State [...]
By David Mittleman Michigan State University Gymnastics Head Coach Kathie Klages has been at the helm of their program for over 27 years. I have never met Kathie and it's unlikely we will meet at a gymnastics competition, but I know a lot about her. Now that the news has broken about allegations that university officials told athletes not to discuss Nassar with police, I can confirm a parent of a MSU scholarship gymnast also told me that MSU employees and [...]
MSU, I Understand the “Nuanced Difference” between Sexual Assault and Appropriate Medical Procedures
By David Mittleman Michigan State University's Title IX Office, which investigates gender discrimination claims, including allegations of sexual assault and harassment, determined what? They determined she “didn't understand the ‘nuanced difference' between sexual assault and an appropriate medical procedure.” Are you kidding me! I have now talked to females from age 15 to 36 and some of their mothers and fathers. I understand how a trusting young girl, who is told by respected adults that she is receiving legitimate medical treatment, [...]
