Gymnasts Seek Justice: Olympic Gold Medalists Take FBI to Court in $1.3B Lawsuit Over Sex Assaults
In a historic move, a group of Olympic gold medalists and other gymnasts have filed a $1.3 billion lawsuit against the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) over its alleged mishandling of the sexual abuse case against former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar. The lawsuit claims that the FBI ignored their reports of sexual abuse and covered up evidence, allowing Nassar to assault more than 100 girls and women, including top athletes, over several years.
The gymnasts, who include Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, and McKayla Maroney, are seeking justice and accountability for the FBI’s failure to protect them and other victims from Nassar’s abuse. They hope that their lawsuit will inspire change and prevent future cases of sexual abuse in sports and other industries.

The gymnasts’ lawsuit sends a powerful message that no one is above the law, and that institutions must be held accountable for their actions.
