Two new class action lawsuits have raised serious questions about how Ohio State University responds to sexual abuse allegations. In their cases, a group of former student-athletes say they were sexually molested for years by coaches and doctors employed by Ohio State. They say high-level University received numerous sexual abuse reports, but did nothing for years, allowing perhaps thousands of young athletes to be molested.

The Team USA Sexual Abuse Scandal
Sexual abuse and exploitation appear to be rampant in Olympic-level competition. The United States Olympic Committee is facing a true crisis, as athletes from USA Gymnastics, USA Swimming and USA Taekwondo continue to step forward to describe their own horrific experiences with team coaches and doctors.
In many cases, their allegations shed a troubling light on the USOC's conduct, depicting an organization more interested in pursuing lucrative business deals and international prestige than player safety. At the same time, many of these allegations have spilled over to implicate the colleges and universities where so many high-level young athletes train. Michigan State University and the University of Southern California have come under intense scrutiny.
Ohio State University Comes Under Fire In New Cases
Now, with the filing of two federal class action lawsuits, Ohio State University finds itself in a similar position. In her class action, a former Ohio State diver accuses the University of failing to report hundreds of child pornography images allegedly taken by her former USA Diving-affiliated coach, William Bohonyi. And in a separate action, four former Ohio State wrestlers say they were abused over the course of decades by long-time team doctor Richard Strauss.
