MSU declines again to share unredacted Nassar documents with AG despite new leadership

Michigan State University

MSU's Board of Trustees has once again refused Attorney General Dana Nessel’s request to release thousands of documents for her investigation into Larry Nassar. That’s after new leaders on the board said they were committed to being transparent with the documents

Last week, Nessel renewed a request for the board to turn over all documents related to the Nassar sex abuse scandal to her office without redactions.

Trustees heard from several advocates for survivors Friday asking them to give access to documents that remain confidential due to communications with legal counsel.

Newly elected Chair Rema Vassar said the school will not comply with Nessel’s request.

“We understand that for those who continue to push for transparency with this particular action, this might not be what you want to hear ”

The decision comes after Vassar and other trustees had said they supported releasing the documents unredacted. Nessel had hoped new leadership on the board would lead to their release.
