Ohio State University Investigators Interview Jim Jordan

Ohio State University Investigators Interview Jim Jordan

Former wrestlers this week have filed two federal lawsuits against Ohio State alleging that it ignored concerns raised about sexual abuse by a now-dead team doctor during the two decades he worked there.

Strauss joined Ohio State in 1978 and retired as a professor in 1998.

"If in fact there was someone who faced any type of harm or any abuse, we want them to get their justice", Jordan says.

"While there is no place in Congress for individuals who have engaged in acts of physical or sexual abuse in their past, no one has accused Jim Jordan of abuse and he's made clear that if he had knowledge of the conduct taking place at Ohio State he would not have hesitated to address it", Renacci said.

Mr. Jordan has said he wasn't aware of any abuse at the time. He has received support from Speaker Paul D. Ryan and members of the the hard-line conservative House Freedom Caucus that he co-founded.

The ex-wrestlers claimed that medical tests performed by Strauss included "excessive and medically unnecessary fondling, touching and groping", adding that coaches and other university officials were repeatedly informed of the doctor's misconduct.

Trump threatens tariffs on all US$505b of Chinese imports
Stock markets in Europe have fallen sharply after President Trump said he was willing to impose tariffs on all Chinese goods imported to America.

In May, Michigan State University agreed to pay $500 million to settle lawsuits brought by more than 300 gymnasts who had suffered sexual abuse at the hands of the disgraced doctor.

Fox News' Bill Hemmer told viewers he takes Jordan at his word, and asked why the allegations are coming out now.

The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified monetary damages, proposes to represent all former Ohio State students or athletes who were examined by Strauss, saying the number of men is in the hundreds, if not thousands.

His family has said they were "shocked and saddened" to learn of the allegations.

Former student Steve Snyder-Hill said he wrote to a student health center official in the 1990s after being examined by Dr. Richard Strauss, whose behavior is the subject of an independent investigation that began months ago. Dr. Richard Strauss, who died by suicide in 2005, is believed to have sexually assaulted or raped possibly thousands of students at Ohio State.
