What's Next With Investigations Into MSU's Handling Of Nassar

Some faculty leaders at Michigan State University are threatening a no-confidence vote in the Board of Trustees if it appoints John Engler interim president.

The Lansing State Journal and The Detroit News reported Friday that Michigan State University didn't share with a patient the full conclusions of a 2014 Title IX investigation into accusations of sexual assault she made against Nassar.

"Should the Board indeed appoint ex-Governor Engler we will sadly be forced to bring a motion to hold a vote of No Confidence in the Board of Trustees to Academic Congress via electronic ballot".

David Doyle was the chairman of the Michigan Republican Party while Engler was governor.

President Lou Anna Simon speaks after being confronted by victims during a break at the sentencing hearing for Larry Nassar, a former team USA Gymnastics doctor who pleaded guilty in November 2017 to sexual assault charges, in Lansing, Michigan, U.S., January 17, 2018.

Ex-sports doctor Larry Nassar's return to court to face another prison sentence for molesting gymnasts could unfold much the same as a hearing last week in another MI county. While there has been no hard evidence that Simon knew Nassar was sexually abusing girls and women, some of the more than 150 women and girls who have accused him said they complained to university employees as far back as the late 1990s. In a statement announcing her resignation, Simon denied any suggestion of a cover-up. State Sen. Margaret O'Brien, who is working on legislation as a result of the Nassar scandal, said she expects him to "clean (the) house of those who must go". Last week, MSU trustee Joel Ferguson apologized after he tried to downplay the abuse case by saying there "are so many more things going on at the university than just this Nassar thing".

"Everybody recognizes it's time for major change at Michigan State University", Trustee Dianne Byrum said.

"I am proud of the exceptional work of the Special Victims Unit led by Lt. Andrea Munford with the steadfast leadership of Chief (Jim) Dunlap", Simon said.

"What's got Michigan State in some trouble here is the sense that they withheld certain information", Forsyth said.

Some students repeatedly shouted "shame" as Engler wrapped up a news conference where he answered questions about his plan for MSU.

A 17-year-old former gymnast says former sports doctor Larry Nassar took advantage of her "innocence and trust" and molested her when she was 9 and 12 years old.

Both politicians and people who have worked with the men applauded the choice.

A MI judge says more than 265 people have come forward to say they were sexual assault victims of disgraced former sports doctor Larry Nassar. He will also have to shake up a culture that critics say led to the university turning a blind eye to Nassar's victims for years.

"Not me, but I'm confident they will find a strong, clear leader".
