$500M settlement reached with Michigan State in Nassar case

The settlement - agreed to by the Board of Trustees in a May 15 conference call, Engler said - involved more than 300 victims of Nassar, who sued the university for failing to protect them from his sexual abuse while he was employed as a sports medicine doctor at MSU.
"The details of the funding sources and timing are not yet available", Fitzgerald said.
Litigation against other institutions Nassar was affiliated with, including USA Gymnastics, the U.S. Olympic Committee and Twistars, are still ongoing.
The deal surpasses the $100 million-plus paid by Penn StateUniversity to settle claims by at least 35 people who accused assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky of sexual abuse, though the Nassar agreement covers far more victims. Nasser pleaded guilty to multiple counts in 2017 and received a prison sentence of up to 175 years.

The scandal also implicated Michigan State University, the university where Nassar practiced. Experts believe it is the largest settlement ever in a sexual misconduct case involving a university.
It's an honor Gina Nichols says will mean a lot to her daughter, who publicly revealed her connection to the case only a few months ago. In 2014, Amanda Thomashow prompted a Title IX investigation against MSU after she reported Nassar's abuse, but the probe ended after the school gaslit her, telling her that she did not understand a standard medical procedure from sexual assault. That's 29% of its total revenue of $2.9 billion.
