Michigan State University said May 16 it had reached a $500 million settlement with more than 300 women and girls who alleged Larry Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University doctor, sexually abused them.

.

The university will pay out $425 million, and set aside another $75 million for survivors who may come forward in the future. The payout far exceeds the $109 million Penn State paid to its more than 30 victims in the case of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who was convicted of molesting young boys in 2012.

.

The settlement should resolve the scores of lawsuits against MSU, and it represents the harshest consequences yet for a university that has grappled with a slow burning crisis for months. MSU president Lou Anna Simon resigned in January, hours after Nassars sentencing. William Strampel, the former dean of MSUs College of Osteopathic Medicine and Nassars former boss, was charged with crimes related to sexual misconduct and abuse of power. The MSU athletic director also retired.

.

The Department of Education has opened a formal investigation into the university. So has the NCAA. Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette embarked on a full review of the Nassar case and the failures of MSU, appointing a special prosecutor to lead the probe.

.

Families and onlookers have demanded that the university, as well as USA Gymnastics, reckon with its role in the scandal and explain how a doctor accused of molesting about 300 women and girls did not face real consequences for decades.

.

That silence enabled Nassar to become perhaps the worst known sexual predator in American sports history.

.

At Nassars sentencing hearing, 15-year-old Emma Ann Miller told the court Nassar had molested her in August 2016 at MSU. The university suspended him about a week after, she said, and she offered a chilling thought: Im possibly the last child he will ever assault.

.

Her mother, Miller added, was still getting bills from MSU sports medicine bills, she said, for appointments where I was sexually assaulted.
