Fifty-one women and girls are suing the U.S. Olympic Committee and the organization’s officers, directors and national governing board for failing to prevent abuse by team doctor Larry Nassar and their coaches.
The suit claims that officials who could have stopped the abuse instead covered it up or did not fully investigate it, The Denver Post reported Friday. It also claims that the Olympic Committee still does not properly handle abuse claims.
The 134-page lawsuit was filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Colorado, according to the Post. The U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) is based in Colorado Springs.
