University of Michigan Doctor Assault

Two men who say they were sexually assaulted by a former sports doctor at the University of Michigan are hoping that a change in leadership with the weekend firing of President Mark Schlissel will allow the school be more accountable toward abuse victims.

DETROIT (AP) — Attorneys representing sexual-assault victims of a former University of Michigan sports doctor are asking a judge to approve a settlement fund, a key step in a $490 million deal between the school and more than 1,000 people.

The settlement between the school and victims of the late Dr. Robert Anderson was announced in January, but there has been no public activity.
