Victims of Larry Nassar's Government-Enabled Sexual Abuse File $130 Million In Claims Against the FBI

They've got a good shot at winning, too. This isn't any made-up bullshit where you sue someone with deep pockets because the actual malefactor doesn't have a lot of money. The FBI's incompetence -- or connivance -- allowed this abuse to continue.

A quiver of straight arrows a mile 'round.

Thirteen women who were sexually assaulted by former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar are asking the FBI for $130 million in compensation, nearly a year after a federal investigation found two agents in Indianapolis committed "fundamental errors" for not acting sooner on allegations of abuse.

Federal tort claims filed Wednesday by attorneys representing the women say they suffered "significant and irreparable personal injuries" because of the FBI's failure to act when it first received allegations that Nassar was sexually abusing gymnasts.

"To know the FBI could have helped to avoid this trauma -- it disgusts me, and it hurts me," Nassar survivor Grace French said during a Thursday news conference.

FBI Director Chris Wray apologized to the four gymnasts who testified and called the inactions of the agency's employees "totally unacceptable."

French and former Michigan State University gymnast Lindsey Lemke are among the 13 women. The rest are anonymous.

Nassar was sentenced to more than 100 years imprisonment in 2018. More than three years later, the Justice Department's Inspector General released a scathing report that found W. Jay Abbott, former head of the FBI's Indianapolis Field Office, and an unidentified FBI agent took eight months to respond when the first allegations against Nassar arrived at their office in 2015.

While their investigation lingered Nassar sexually assaulted at least 120 women and children, according to John Manly, an attorney who represents Nassar survivors.

IndyStar has requested comment from the federal government on the tort claims filed this week.

Pressure on the federal law enforcement agency started to rise after IndyStar first exposed the allegations against Nassar in 2016. When the Inspector General began to review how the Indianapolis FBI conducted its investigation, Abbott and the other agent made false statements "to make it appear that they had been diligent," according to the federal government.

Abbott was also criticized for exhibiting "extremely poor judgment" because he discussed a job opportunity with USA Gymnastics at the same time his agency was looking into the Nassar allegations.
