Over 5 years after Rachael Denhollander went public with allegations of sexual abuse by Larry Nassar, the legal battle between survivors and USA Gymnastics is over.
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robyn Moberly will approve a $380 million settlement that will compensate more than 500 women abused by Nassar, their coach or someone else affiliated with the sport; give survivors a dedicated seat on the USA Gymnastics board of directors; and end efforts by the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic to strip the federation of its position as the national sports governing body.
Denhollander said, “Now the hard work of reform and rebuilding can begin...Whether or not justice comes and change is made, depends on what happens next...I am proud of the nonmonetary reform commitments in particular - this represents so much hard work from members of the committee and I am eager to see these changes through.”
