Two new class actions lawsuits have cast doubt on Ohio State's commitment to preventing and reporting sexual abuse. In their complaints, two groups of former student-athletes say they were horribly abused by Ohio State coaches and doctors, but no one did anything to help them.

Lawyers Open Investigation Into Ohio State Soccer

These shocking allegations require a swift and powerful response. In the wake of these new lawsuits, our committed sexual abuse attorneys have launched a full investigation into Ohio State's policies and practices surrounding sexual abuse. Did the school respond appropriately to sexual abuse complaints or, as alleged in the lawsuits, did the University conceal and ignore them?

College Soccer

We intend to find out, but to further our investigation, we're reaching out to members of the Buckeye athletic community for information. Were you or a loved one affected by this issue. Were you sexually abused while training in Ohio State's soccer program? Our experienced attorneys may be able to help.

Some eligible survivors may be able to pursue legal action, by filing a private lawsuit for financial compensation and accountability. To learn more about your rights, contact our lawyers today for a free consultation. You can find more information at no charge and no obligation.

Sexual Abuse Scandal Engulfs Olympic Athletics

Olympic-level athletics in this country is under pressure. A series of high-profile scandals in USA Diving, USA Swimming, USA Gymnastics and USA Taekwondo suggest that sexual abuse and exploitation are common and widespread at the highest levels of international competition.

Ohio State University Under Fire

Many universities have also come under fire, in part because colleges and schools are often affiliated with the United States Olympic Committee in some regard. We've seen allegations of negligence in relation to sexual abuse recently leveled against Michigan State University, the University of Southern California, and now, Ohio State University. We have every intention of getting to the bottom of this problem.

New Lawsuits: Ohio State Failed To Protect Athletes

In two breaking new class action lawsuits, former student-athletes say they were abused for years by doctors and coaches bound to protect them. In one case, a former Olympic-level diver accuses Ohio State of failing to protect her from William Bohonyi, a USA Diving-affiliated coach who taught through the Ohio State Diving Club. The second case revolves around Richard Strauss, a now-deceased team doctor who may have molested hundreds of young men from 14 different sports at the school.

Both lawsuits claim that high-level administrators at Ohio State ignored repeated reports of sexual abuse, choosing to maintain their prestigious positions and lucrative sponsorship deals rather than protect young student-athletes.
