Simone Biles, Aly Raisman Among Victims Suing FBI for $1 Billion Over Larry Nassar Investigation

The news follows a July 2021 Justice Department finding that the FBI made “fundamental” errors investigating the former Team USA gymnastics doctor’s decades of sexual abuse to women and girls, for which he was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison in 2018.

In the previous complaint, 150 women and girls said they were abused by Nassar, 58, while he worked as a doctor at Michigan State University and for USA Gymnastics.

“If the FBI had simply done its job, Nassar would have been stopped before he ever had the chance to abuse hundreds of girls, including me,” former University of Michigan gymnast Samantha Roy told the AP.

In the years since Nassar was sentenced, Biles has pushed for national organizations to take greater accountability for their failures since she first came forward with her story.
