The progression and procession continues in a Lansing, Michigan courtroom- and Larry Nassar has had enough of it...
Enough of it to the point Nassar wrote a 6-page letter to the judge presiding in the case- Rosemarie Aquilina- and the judge called Nassar out for his letter...
Here's your Day Three recap, thanks to our friends at WLNS
USA Gymnastics has severed their relationship with Karolyi Ranch- the Huntsville, Texas based training facility that was a part of the footprint for gymnast training. Nassar was working there and, according to Olympic champ Aly Raisman, groomed gymnasts for a long time possibility (if not probability) for sexual abuse that included Raisman and Simone Biles.
Raisman joined Bob Ley to call out Nassar... thanks to OTL and ESPN...
Michigan State University is also being called out for their inaction over two decades of Nassar's employment. The university President, LouAnna Simon, was not in the courtroom for the first day of impact statements, came for Day Two, and has made it clear that she isn't coming back. Gymnasts called out the school in their impact statements as well and haven't held back- even as the Detroit News reports in an article by Kim Kozlowski that 8 complaints made their way to MSU- one of those 8 made its way to Simon in a 2014 Title IX investigation.
She denies any knowledge... even as Kozlowski reiterates that 14 individuals on campus staff knew some extent of the abuse claims. Former MSU gymnast Lindsey Lemke went after Simon in her impact statement.
The Board of Trustees has asked the state Attorney General for a review of their investigation just as House and Senate leaders in the state of Michigan are asking for Simon's resignation.
