The day the Jane Doe lawsuit was filed, I talked to a very distraught Larry Nassar. He told me that he was so sad that the two athletes that had filed suit has mistaken the “procedure” he had done to them as a abuse. He claimed that it was a justified medical procedure by the National Osteopathic Association and he had lectured about it many times. He was crying on the phone.
I felt sad for a colleague I had worked with for 20 years and later that day I posted, “Sending love and support” on his Facebook page. I now know that Larry was a master manipulator but at the time I felt compassion towards him. …
No doubt many of his past colleagues are feeling the same way right now.

“As the board identifies its next chair and fills the vacant board positions, we remain focused on working every day to ensure that our culture, policies and actions reflect our commitment to those we serve.”
Mark Jones, a spokesman for the U.S.O.C., said that top Olympic committee officials met with Parilla on Jan. 11 to ask him to resign.
The Olympic committee has decertified other federations in the past for mismanagement, stripping them of their authority as the national governing bodies. Mr. Blackmun’s statement did not indicate that the committee deemed that necessary in this case. …
