A $ 1 billion lawsuit against the FBI
Dr. Larry Nassar, the disgraced doctor for the U.S. gymnastics team, is accused of sexually abusing female gymnasts who were on the national team.
Plaintiffs say that the FBI didn’t do a good job of looking into reports of sexual assault by Larry Nassar.
Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, and McKayla Maroney are among the athletes.
Nassar faces a maximum sentence of 175 years in jail for his role in the sexual abuse of young gymnasts.
According also to the FBI’s watchdog, the FBI ignored warnings about Nassar and made mistakes early on in its investigation.
The US Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General released a damning report on the federal agency’s inquiry into the death of Michael Nassar last year.
The inquiry against Nassar began in 2015, according to the newspaper.
It took more than a year before the FBI realized what was going on.
Most claims believe they are abuse after the FBI discovered Nassar’s crimes in 2015.
At Michigan State University, Nassar established a clinic where he treated numerous gymnasts.
The FBI’s field office has not investigated Nasar’s attack, nor have other authorities been informed.
All of the organizations that were supposed to protect us, including the United States Olympic Committee, lied to us.

I believe that the only way to get justice and healing is by pursuing a lawsuit.
