Statement by Manly Stewart & Finaldi Regarding Department of Justice Investigation of USOPC, USAG, and the FBI in the Larry Nassar Sex Abuse Scandal

In response to the DOJ's investigation into USOPC, USAG, and the FBI's handling of the Larry Nassar scandal, Manly Stewart & Finaldi emphasize the need for public results to address the culture of exploitation and abuse of child athletes in the United States.

“The US Olympic Committee, USA Gymnastics, the FBI, their senior executives, and others who enabled Larry Nassar’s abuse of our Olympic athletes and hundreds of other young girls must be brought to justice. I am convinced that this investigation only happened because of the courage of survivors publicly revealing the pain and suffering caused by their abuse to Congress, in court, and in the media. The Office of Inspector General has been investigating the FBI’s handling of the Nassar scandal for more than a year, and the results of that investigation should be made public immediately. The results of this new investigation should also be made public so that action can be taken by Congress and the courts to end the culture of exploitation and abuse of child athletes in the United States.”
