1st male victim of pedophile doctor Nassar files lawsuit

The lawsuit was filed in Santa Clara, California. Nassar regularly invited patients to visit him after business hours in the basement of his home if they needed help with injuries, according to women in the lawsuit.

Raisman, a six-time Olympic medalist and former team captain, says in the complaint that Nassar sexually abused her at the Karolyi Ranch National Training Center and at competitions both in the United States and overseas, including the London 2012 Summer Olympics.

The 18-year-old athlete joined his sister Kamerin MacKay Moore as a plaintiff in a federal lawsuit originally filed by Rachael Denhollander, a former gymnast who in 2016 was the first person to publicly accuse Nassar of abuse.

In two other cases, Nassar was sentenced to 60 years in prison for possession of child pornography in December 2017 and 40 to 125 years in prison for three more criminal sexual conduct cases in early February. Nassar is behind bars after receiving prison sentences of up to hundreds of years.

Raisman has previously called for an independent investigation of the USOC and USA Gymnastics by federal authorities.

USA Gymnastics and the USOC did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press.

Raisman told CNN that after speaking with an investigator hired by USA Gymnastics in 2015, she felt threatened, and believed she would jeopardize herself if she continued to speak out.

Former Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar appears in court for his final sentencing phase in Eaton County Circuit Court, Feb. 5, 2018 in Charlotte, Michigan. "This is what we're doing to to change.'" USA Gymnastics had said they wanted to work with Raisman to address issues of assault, but they had been criticized for working too slowly. "It is my hope that the legal process will hold them accountable".

The USOC has faced months of sustained criticism over the sex abuse scandal.

The latest departure was Scott Blackmun, CEO of the US Olympic Committee, who resigned Wednesday. The Committee also announced reform to help protect athletes from abuse.

In a statement on Friday, Raisman said the USOC and USA Gymnastics had failed in their duties. Raisman said the USOC and USA Gymnastics allowed Nassar to continue abusing athletes by not telling the university about the conduct that led them to fire him. She also listed a number of actions the organization is taking, including closing down the Karolyi Ranch training center, requiring mandatory reporting of abuse, and making it easier to report such abuse.
