Statement by Attorney and Survivor Sarah Klein Regarding $138.7 Million Settlement on Behalf of Larry Nassar Survivors in Case Against the FBI

LOS ANGELES, April 24, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — This settlement concludes the darkest chapter in the history of competitive sports. It illuminates the soul crushing trail of destruction paved by one evil man and enabled by several of our nation’s most powerful institutions. Michigan State University, USA Gymnastics the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee and now the FBI have all been proven to be complicit in the sexual abuse of more than 500 women. My sister survivors dragged these powerful institutions into the bright light of the media and the courts so that this will never happen again,” said attorney and victim’s advocate Sarah Klein
