AG Nessel Formally Renews Request for All Nassar Records from New MSU Board of Trustees

LANSING – In a letter sent today to the Michigan State University Board of Trustees, comprised of new membership and leadership since the start of the year, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel renewed her request for all remaining documents pertaining to the department’s investigation of Larry Nassar. Some 6,000 previously and repeatedly requested documents remain withheld by the University and, in her letter to the board, the Attorney General appealed for the full and unredacted release of “the remaining documents our office requested and to fulfill its stated pledge to continue cooperating with the investigation through its conclusion.”

The Attorney General writes that her letter serves as “formal request for all records of any investigation conducted by Michigan State University into this matter.” 

“We remain committed as ever to pursuing justice for the many survivors of Larry Nassar’s violence at the University, and I hope the newly comprised board shares that commitment with us more meaningfully than their predecessors,” said Nessel. “This is a pursuit we are determined to see through until the standards of investigation and justice are met. They haven’t been yet, not by the University that continues to withhold thousands of documents my department has requested over and again. So we have renewed our request, hopefully for the last time, so that we may secure justice, close this difficult chapter for the survivors, and finish this investigation confident in our review of exactly how and why the University failed to protect these students from Larry Nassar.”
