Ohio State Sexual Misconduct by Dr. Strauss
The Ohio State University fails to act
The legal team at AthleteAbuse.com has filed a class-action lawsuit against Ohio State University in representing numerous former athletes of the 14 different sports that Dr. Richard Strauss was the team doctor for. Our firm continues investigating claims of sexual misconduct involving The Ohio State University and its team doctor, Dr. Richard Strauss.
The Ohio State University announced in April that it was investigating accusations that Strauss abused and fondled wrestlers when he was the team doctor involving 14 different team sports from the mid-1970s to late 1990s.
Our national team of attorneys is representing several former Ohio State athletes from some of the 14 different sports that Dr. Richard Strauss was involved in doing physical exams and also from his work at his off-campus medical clinic and student services.
We invite those harmed by OSU to call 1-800-474-5201 for a free and confidential case review.
It is our opinion that The Ohio State University (like Michigan State) appears to have knowingly turned a blind eye to the sexual abuse and harassment of hundreds of its athletes by the medical doctor that they were forced to be examined by. Once again, another public university is placing its reputation and image ahead of the safety and sanctity of its student-athletes. This despicable conduct has harmed hundreds of innocent athletes.
This is a case that goes to the top levels of The Ohio State administration. It goes beyond the coaches as there is evidence that two Athletic Directors were notified and warned about Dr. Strauss’s unusual and bizarre behavior.
Much like Jerry Sandusky used Penn State showers and saunas for sexual gratification with young boys, it appears that Dr. Richard Strauss also used showers around student-athletes. It seems that it was not unusual for Dr. Strauss to shower with athletes numerous times per day.
