In a new lawsuit, a former diver at Ohio State accuses the University of mishandling her sexual abuse case. The diver, who trained through the USA Diving-affiliated Ohio State Diving Club, says USA Diving and Ohio State allowed one of her coaches to sexually exploit her for years, despite having evidence of the man's misconduct.

Sexual Abuse Negligence Allegations Against Ohio State

If true, her allegations mark a dramatic new stage in the sexual abuse crisis that has gripped USA Gymnastics, USA Swimming, USA Taekwondo and now USA Diving. Ohio State is implicated as a defendant in the class action, shocking proud Buckeyes across the country.

How Far Does Sexual Abuse Scandal Go?

But does the abuse end with the Ohio State Diving Club? Or does it go further, as the young woman alleges in her lawsuit?

We've already seen hundreds of young female athletes step forward with their own stories of horrific sexual abuse. Over 400 lawsuits have been filed against USA Gymnastics alone, all linked to the case of convicted child molester Larry Nassar.

Recent scandals hailing from other parts of Team USA suggest that sexual abuse and exploitation are commonplace in Olympic-level athletics. Now, new allegations suggest that Ohio State is at the center of this scandal.

Lawyers Open Full Investigation Into Ohio State Lacrosse

In light of these recent allegations, our dedicated sexual abuse attorneys have opened a full investigation into Ohio State's sexual abuse and assault reporting and response policies. Just like every university, Ohio State has a sworn legal obligation to protect students and athletes participating in school athletics clubs from sexual abuse and harm.

To further our investigation, we're reaching out to members of the Buckeye lacrosse program for help. Have you or a loved one been affected by this issue. Were you sexually abused by a coach or volunteer while training through Buckeye Lacrosse?

Our experienced lawyers may be able to help. We believe some sexual abuse survivors may be eligible to pursue legal action. To learn more about our investigation, contact us today for a free consultation.
