USA Gymnastics and Olympic Committee reach $380M settlement with Larry Nassar victims

Victims of former US gymnastics doctor, Larry Nassar have reached a $380 million settlement with USA Gymnastics, the US Olympic & Paralympic Committee and their insurers, bringing an end to five years of legal battling.

The settlement was confirmed during a hearing in a federal bankruptcy court in Indianapolis on Monday, December 13.

 

The legal battle, which involved US Olympic stars Simone Biles, Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney, followed Nassar’s 2017 conviction that led to a 60-year sentence for possessing child sex abuse material.
