EAST LANSING, Mich., Feb. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On February 22nd, Carrie J. Koerber, an attorney at the Abood Law Firm, filed a complaint on behalf of her client, Jane ALF-1 Doe, alleging that her client was a victim of the sexual assault by Dr. Larry Nassar, former team physician for the U.S.A. gymnastics team and former faculty member at Michigan State University's (MSU) College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Larry Nassar worked at the MSU Sports Medicine Clinic.
Carrie J. Koerber is a ten-year employee of the Abood Law Firm, a graduate of MSU College of Business, and MSU College of Law. She is also a former member of the MSU varsity softball team. Carrie J. Koerber is uniquely positioned given her legal and her personal experience, including that as a former Division 1 athlete at MSU.
"We hold MSU in high regard. These allegations are deeply troubling and we hope we can work with MSU in assisting to identify the victims," Koerber said. "Once all the victims have been identified, we expect MSU will act swiftly in bringing this matter to resolution by recognizing the wrongs that were committed and attempting to make the victims whole."
Abood Law Firm partners Andrew P. Abood and Jeffrey Lance Abood are co-counsel on the case.
"Ultimately, our investigation, if needed, will focus on evaluating the decisions that were made and when they were made," said Andrew P. Abood, founding partner of Abood Law Firm and a former member of the MSU men's golf team. "I don't think anyone at this point can claim, based on what we know Dr. Nassar was doing, that he was engaging in medical treatment."
Abood Law Firm, with offices in East Lansing, Birmingham, Phoenix and Miami, has always been active in high stakes litigation.
"Two of the biggest civil cases in the state are the Flint Water Crisis and the assaults of Dr. Nassar," noted Jeffrey Lance Abood, partner in the Abood Law Firm. "I believe we are the only law firm, outside of the attorney general's office, that is actively involved in both. It is obviously a great honor and an important responsibility to be able to effect justice and shape policy with regard to these two important issues."
Other victims of Dr. Larry Nassar are encouraged to contact Carrie J. Koerber at 517-332-5900.
