- MSU allegedly knew of Nassar’s conduct according to his personnel file in 2004.
- MSU allegedly had two decades to listen to young girls’ and women’s complaints and did not listen.
- MSU knew of Nassar actions in 2014 as they put restrictions on him pertaining to his “treatment” for 2014-2016.
- MSU told Nassar that he was required to have another person in the room with him while performing any procedure close to a sensitive area.
- MSU told Nassar that there will be no “skin to skin” contact in any sensitive area but if necessary it would be explained in detail while another person was in the room AND another person would be in the room for the procedure.
- MSU would tell new people in the practice of these restrictions/requirements.

MSU has “no plans” to release internal review into Larry Nassar – MPR by Kate Wells
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.

Boyce and Guerrero spoke during an interview Friday at the office of their attorneys, Mick Grewal and David Mittleman. It was embargoed until Monday afternoon.

2/24/17 OKEMOS, MI (WLNS) – For weeks, attorneys representing alleged victims of the former MSU doctor have expressed concerns about whether MSU Police can thoroughly investigate claims of sexual assault against Nassar.
For the first time Friday morning, they held a news conference, calling on the university to bring in an outside agency to look into whether there was any wrongdoing.
“I’d like to see the FBI get involved,” David Mittleman said.
David Mittleman and Mick Grewal, both attorneys for Church Wyble, a divison of Grewal Law, represent a dozen girls and women who are suing former MSU and USA gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.

Blog Posts Regarding the Larry Nassar 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.
