Predatory team docs are costing universities a lot of moneyPosted: May 18, 2021
Forty-one men have filed suit in federal court against Ohio State University after a report from a law firm investigation concluded university employees were aware of concerns about sexual predator and team doctor Richard Strauss as early as 1979 but didn’t stop him from sexually abusing patients at the school.
At least 400 claims have previously been made alleging similar conduct by the doctor and the failures of the university to stop this predator and protect its students. Until results of the law firm’s investigation made national headlines in 2019, many of the men in the newly filed federal cases thought their experiences were isolated, didn’t recognize those as sexual assault, or didn’t know that school officials had been aware of concerns during the doctor’s tenure.
“‘With this suit, plaintiffs seek to hold OSU accountable for its failures, and to ensure that something like this can never happen again,’ lawyers wrote in one of the new cases.” Never. Again. Believe victims the first time and stop automatically taking the word of a narcissistic predator. Or it’ll cost ya.
