Wieber said that Nassar abused her over six years.

E! News reports that the suit alleges Michigan State University and former USAG President Steve Penny and Chairman Paul Parilla enabled Nassar and failed to disclose his criminal conduct.

Nassar pleaded guilty last year to seven counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. He was convicted and sentenced to 40 to 175 years for the abuse of over 150 women.

Along with Wieber, fellow gymnasts Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney and Jamie Dantzscher have filed suits against USA Gymnastics and the USOC. Wieber also testified before Congress on Tuesday about the sexual abuse scandal.

Michigan State University has been blasted for allegedly ignoring complaints about Nassar since 1997. USA Gymnastics [VIDEO] has also been criticized for allowing Nassar to treat gymnasts without another person in the room and not notifying MSU when Nassar was dropped as a team doctor, following allegations of molesting three athletes.

MSU and USAG attempting to apologize

MSU released a statement attempting to apologize to those who were abused and claim they are working to make sure something like this never happens again.

They are working on improving their reporting practices and investigations, and employee training is being conducted.

Wieber wrote that Nassar was allowed to treat gymnasts in hotel rooms alone, without anyone to protect them from being taken advantage of. Wieber alleges that nobody was concerned about whether they were being sexually abused.

USA Gymnastics has been quiet for the most part but said they respect the courage shown by Jordyn Wieber and others. They also attempted to apologize to those who were hurt by the actions of Larry Nassar. USA Gymnastics claims they first became aware of concerns involving Nassar in 2015, which led them to report Nassar to the FBI. Wieber’s suit is among several filed in California, alleging that because of Nassar’s MSU contract, the university can be legally held liable for his actions.
