An investigation into former Ohio State University (“OSU”) team doctor, Dr. Richard Strauss, resulted in more than 1,500 separate allegations of sexual assault by former students. The claims against Dr. Strauss date back to 1979 and involve both male and female students alleging inappropriate touching and/or rape.
To make matters worse, the investigation revealed that several prior students had filed official complaints against Dr. Strauss with coaches, trainers, and athletic department officials alleging sexual misconduct; yet, OSU took no corrective action against Dr. Strauss. Recently, a lawsuit was filed against OSU alleging that the institution was aware of Dr. Strauss’s longstanding history of abuse on OSU grounds, but OSU took no action and in fact, affirmatively concealed the misconduct.
