EAST LANSING (AP) — A woman says she was drugged and raped by Larry Nassar when he was a medical student in 1992 but that police at Michigan State University refused to investigate.

A lawsuit was filed Monday, a deadline for certain legal claims against Michigan State. After medical school, Nassar became a sports doctor at MSU and for elite U.S. gymnasts. Numerous gymnasts have accused him of sexual assault and he is now in prison.

The woman says she had a knee injury as a 17-year-old field hockey player and went to Nassar because he was conducting a study about flexibility.

The woman says Nassar drugged her, raped her and videotaped the assault. She says she became pregnant and had a miscarriage.

The lawsuit says George Perles, who was athletic director for part of 1992, was aware of the assault and covered it up, and campus police wouldn’t pursue it. He’s now a member of the school’s governing board.

Michigan State said Tuesday it’s “looking into the situation.” A message seeking comment was left for Perles.

    When is someone in authority going to hold John Engler accountable and investigate what he knew about the entire MSU troubles? After he expunges all the records with his name connected to it? If it were his daughters he would feel different
