Michigan State suspends coach linked to sex abuse complaints

2nd woman: Michigan State coach knew of sex assaults by doctor

Klages' suspension after 27 years as gymnastics coach was announced Monday without any elaboration from Michigan State. Nassar faces state charges for sexually assaulting a patient, federal charges for child pornography, and was sacked by MSU in late 2016 after questions about his conduct. "Her recent suspension as head coach is a outcome of that", said the statement from Shirlee Bobryk, Klages' attorney.

Along with serving as the team doctor for Michigan State, Nassar was also the team doctor for the US gymnastics team for four Olympic games.

In a letter to Klages informing her of her suspension, MSU Athletic Director Mark Hollis said Klages' "passionate defense of Dr. Nassar created an emotionally charged environment for the team".

The allegation - the third made specifically against Klages - was first made in a court document filed January 27 seeking to add the athlete to the federal lawsuit against Michigan State University, Nassar, USA Gymnastics and Twistars gymnastics club in Dimondale. Since September, more than 60 women or girls have made sexual assault allegations about Nassar to law enforcement, officials have said.

But several of those plaintiffs say in court documents they they told Klages as far back as the late 1990's that Nassar abused them, and accuse her of failing to act on their complaints.

Ben Affleck Is Not Leaving The DC Cinematic Universe
"I have been told that Affleck is talking with Warner Bros in an attempt to get out of being Batman", the podcast host alleged. When Warner Bros' set up its interconnected DCEU, they copied Marvel's Cinematic Universe.

A message seeking comment about Hollis' letter wasn't immediately returned by Klages' attorney.

This motion, like those filed last week, alleges that Nassar gave his patients "pictures and other trinkets" to win their trust, and engaged his patients in "sexually suggestive conversations".

Those interviews also confirm that at the conclusion of the meeting you shared with the team your highly emotional sense of shock regarding the allegations against Dr. Nassar.

Klages' attorney, Shirlee Bobryk, says Klages would never put athletes in "harm's way". The MSU gymnastics team members and coaching staff have been her top priority for her entire career.

"Out of respect to the university and the gymnastics program in particular, Ms. Klages believes it is in everyone's best interests for her to retire from her current position at MSU", Bobryk said. "However, Ms. Klages looks forward to being able to testify under oath and fully answer all questions that relate to any involvement she is alleged to have had in the situation".
