Aly Raisman sues U.S. Olympic Committee for failure to protect young athletes against Larry Nassar
‘I refuse to wait any longer’
by Katie Way
Aly Raisman filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Olympic Committee on Wednesday for their failure to protect young athletes against Larry Nassar's abuse or properly investigating Nassar after his conviction.
"It has become painfully clear that these organizations have no intention of properly addressing this problem," Raisman said in a statement on Friday. "I refuse to wait any longer for these organizations to do the right thing. It is my hope that the legal process will hold them accountable and enable the change that is so desperately needed."
Raisman cited the fact that the USOC has yet to conduct a full investigation of how Nassar's abuse was allowed to happen as one of the main reasons for taking legal action. According to ABC News, Raisman is suing the USOC for physical, psychological and economic damages — the latter to the tune of millions of dollars.
I fully support @Aly_Raisman in taking concrete action against the Olympic committee, which did nothing while 125 girls were sexually assaulted.
When institutions fail women – talk is cheap, but actions rarely come. Thank you for keeping them accountable.https://t.co/IGrmsOXDjD

Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics doctor, has been accused of sexual assault by more than 260 woman and one man — so far. He is currently serving a minimum sentence of 125 years for sexual abuse and child pornography charges.
Raisman's attorney called U.S. Gymnastics' and the USOC's inaction towards Nassar a "conspiracy to silence victims and cover-up the largest child sex abuse scandal in history.”
