(WLNS) – A member of the faculty of Michigan State University and a former doctor for USA Gymnastics, is accused of sexual abuse by two former gymnasts.
According to a report published by the IndyStar, longtime USA Gymnastics medical director Dr. Larry Nassar alleged that the doctor molested them during treatments in the 1990s and early 2000s.
Nassar has not been charged with any crimes and his lawyer says Nassar “emphatically” denies any wrongdoing.
Nassar resigned from USA Gymnastics last fall.
Last Thursday one of the former gymnasts, a former Olympic medalist, sued Nassar and USA Gymnastics in California.
The woman is unnamed in the suit.
In the suit she alleges that USA Gymnastics did not act upon suspicions about Nassar’s suspected actions and allowed Nassar to examine her alone in private rooms.
According to the IndyStar report MSU has suspended Nassar from “clinical and patient duties” as it investigates the allegations.
Until August 30 Nassar was team physician for the MSU gymnastics and Holt High School. He also is listed as a team physician for Twistars Gymnastics Club.
