Waco attorney representing Jane Doe in new Nassar civil suit

News

Waco Attorney Michelle Tuegel is representing a “Jane Doe” in a civil suit filed on Thursday against convicted former USA Gymnastics Doctor Larry Nassar and USA Gymnastics. 

Court documents report the Jane Doe was sexually abused by Nassar for nearly two years starting in 2013. 

Also mentioned in the suit is that during the 2011 World Championships, one of the Jane Doe’s teammates informed USA Gymnastics officials of Nassar’s behavior – but the complaint was ignored. 

Tuegel says this Jane Doe could be one of the last victim’s Nassar ever abused.

“This was preventable. The adults, institutions and organizations turned a blind eye and they ignored red flags. And they, they really prioritized success and metals over the safety of these young women,” Tuegel says.

The suit reports that complaints made against Nassar started as early as 1997, when he treated athletes at Michigan State University. Earlier this year, the former doctor was sentenced to between 40 and 125 years in prison.
