Strampel is accused of failing "to report sexual abuse about which they knew or should have known" when it comes to ex-MSU and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.
After the federal sentencing on December 7, Shannon Smith and Matt Newburg, the attorneys who have represented Nassar since past year, indicated that they would not represent him during appeals.
In recent years, former Olympians and other gymnasts have told harrowing stories of Dr. Nassar sexually assaulting them when he was supposed to be treating their sports injuries. He is set to be sentenced next month on the criminal sexual conduct charges.
During the sentencing in federal court, Neff ordered Nassar to serve the federal sentences consecutive to the state sentences.
A total of 125 women came forward to the MSU Police Department to report crimnal behavior, and more than that are now involved in civil suits against Nassar, the university, USA Gymnastics and the Eaton County gymnastics facility Twistars. "Your lawyers say that Nassar fooled everyone at MSU". However, the victims will be making statements during the public portion of the meeting.
Just to make it clear, Michigan State University President Lou Anna K. Simon will still live a quite comfortable life.
The obvious rationale for Fitzgerald's failure to produce a written report is to hide whatever his investigation discovered from attorneys representing the plaintiffs suing the university and, not incidentally, the public.
MSU's scandal is shaping up to be much like the case of Penn State University, where Jerry Sandusky was able to prey on his young victims for years, shielded by the school's high-profile football program.
Meanwhile, Michigan State University has repeatedly state there was no wrongdoing.
The strength of MSU leaders' commitment to that mission was in doubt even before Fitzgerald thumbed his nose at Schuette's demand for the findings of an apparently undocumented internal investigation.
Other survivors took to the podium to address MSU's trustees. However, MSU trustees continue to voice their support for the president, which was reaffirmed during Friday's meeting.
A woman who worked at a practice with Nassar said she wasn't informed about restrictions placed upon him by MSU.
