Simone Biles Among 90 Athletes Suing FBI for $1 Billion Over Botched Nassar Investigation

Former U.S. Olympic gymnasts Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, and McKayla Moroney have filed a one-billion-dollar lawsuit against the FBI for mishandling its investigation into sexual assault allegations against former US Gymnastics Dr. Larry Nassar.

During Nassar’s trial, it was revealed that the FBI was aware of allegations of sexual assault going back at least to 2015. Still, the Bureau did nothing about it, leaving Nassar free to continue molesting young girls for several more than a year.

Now a group of gymnasts is suing with a suit filed against the Bureau on Wednesday, the Daily Mail reported.

“It is time for the FBI to be held accountable,” said Maggie Nichols, a national champion gymnast from Oklahoma.
