News has recently broken that former University of Michigan doctor Robert Anderson has been accused of sexually abusing three men during his time at the university. The accusers have claimed that the university has allowed this type of abuse to go on for decades. Those making the allegations were athletes of the university when Dr. Anderson was employed at the University of Michigan. With these allegations coming to the surface, there has been an outcry for Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel to investigate the matter.
In response to these allegations, Nessel said that her office would investigate those allegations with two primary conditions:
First, the state Legislature must appropriate money for the investigation, similar to what it did for the sex scandal investigation at Michigan State University. And second, U-M must cooperate, be completely transparent and waive all attorney-client privileges, which was not done in MSU’s abuse scandal.
