The Herald reports:
Michigan State University agreed to pay US$500 million (NZ$724m) to settle claims from more than 300 women and girls who said they were assaulted by sports doctor Larry Nassar in the worst sex-abuse case in sports history, officials announced Wednesday. …
The university and lawyers for 332 victims announced the deal after negotiating privately with the help of a mediator. Under the agreement, US$425 million would be paid to current claimants and US$75 million would be set aside for any future claims. Lawyers will also be compensated out of the US$500 million pool.
Michigan State was accused of ignoring or dismissing complaints about Nassar, some as far back as the 1990s.
Sickening that he got away with this for over 25 years. His 140 years minimum jail sentence seems inadequate.
