Michigan State University is taking a critical step towards accountability in its handling of the Larry Nassar investigation

The move marks the culmination of a six-year dispute between MSU and Michigan’s top prosecutor.

The university withheld or redacted more than six-thousand documents related to its investigation of the disgraced former sports doctor.

Following a renewed request last year from Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel the MSU Board of Trustees agreed in December to release the remaining Nassar documents.

In a statement, the university says the records will be released in batches and handled by a temporary specialized team.

The process is expected to be completed by the end of the month.

Nassar is serving a de facto life sentence in federal prison for his sex abuse crimes.
