Michigan sexual abuse

The University of Michigan has reached a $490 million settlement with the sexual abuse victims of a former sports doctor employed by the school. The number of victims of Robert Anderson reported to be over 1,000 over four decades.

Ann Arbor News’ tweeted out the University of Michigan’s president’s statement on the massive settlement on Tuesday.

The $490 million settlement is the largest in history paid to survivors of sexual abuse. If the number of 1,050 victims involved in the case is indeed accurate, each victim will be paid about $466,667.

News of the settlement comes mere days after the university fired President Mark Schlissel for having an “inappropriate relationship with a subordinate.” Stay tuned to TGH for more college sports news, including updates on this developing story.
