Aly Raisman files lawsuit against USA Gymnastics, USOC

Former gymnast and victim Kamerin Moore speaks at the sentencing hearing for Nassar in January

Former gymnast and victim Kamerin Moore speaks at the sentencing hearing for Nassar in January

The lawsuit, obtained by Buzzfeed, now says that national team member, Maggie Nichols, told USA Gymnastics about Nassar's abuse as far back as 2015, but they did not inform the Federal Bureau of Investigation for over a month.

In court documents obtained by E! Moore says the incident happened when he went to Nassar's home seeking treatment for a shoulder injury. Jacob Moore, a freshman, said he was treated by Nassar multiple times and described a 2016 incident in which Nassar administered acupuncture in and around Moore's genitalia after pulling down Moore's trousers in front of a female gymnast who was a minor.

According to the Associated Press, more than 100 civil suits have been filed throughout the country against Nassar and USA Gymnastics.

The 23-year-old is one of dozens of women to have reported abuse by Nassar, a former USA Gymnastics doctor, under the guise of medical treatment.

"It has become painfully clear that these organizations have no intention of properly addressing this problem", she added.

Filed Thursday in state superior court in Santa Clara County, Calif., the lawsuit asserts Nassar prodded Raisman on her vagina with his bare hand and claimed he was providing legitimate therapy that would relieve pain, a method of abuse described by scores of other girls and women in public statements, police reports and lawsuits.

The lawsuit contends that the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC), USA Gymnastics and former executives of the sport's governing body had the authority and mandate to discipline Nassar but never intervened.

The gymnast said she was abused on multiple occasions by Nassar.

In addition to the two sentences for sexual assault charges, Nassar was also sentenced to 60 years in prison for child pornography crimes.

Under growing pressure to quit, Scott Blackmun, CEO of the United States Olympic Committee, resigned "due to ongoing health issues resulting from prostate cancer, "according to a USOC statement on Wednesday".

"They are very, very much responsible for this and Larry Nassar helped create policies with U.S. gymnastics and the United States Olympic Committee", she told CNN.

Raisman's lawsuit alleges that USAG and the USOC had "knowledge that Nassar had been sexually abusive towards [a] minor".

"I refuse to wait any longer for these organizations to do the right thing", she continued.

USA Gymnastics has said it first learned of alleged abuse in 2015, and informed the Federal Bureau of Investigation. USA Gymnastics operates in Indiana.

The Olympic gymnast is taking legal action.

During Larry Nasser's trial, where he was charged with molesting 150 young female gymnasts under his care as doctor for USA Gymnastics, gymnast Aly Raisman specifically called for not only a harsh sentence for Nasser, but for an investigation and charges to be brought against USA Gymnastics for allowing Nasser to operate, and for silencing the girls who reported him.
