Supreme Court to Allow Sexual Assault Survivors to Sue Ohio State University

HeadlineJun 27, 2023

Also on Monday, the Supreme Court cleared the way for survivors of sexual assault to sue Ohio State University (OSU) for failing to protect them from predator doctor Richard Strauss. In 2020, former Ohio State wrestling captain Adam DiSabato accused Republican Ohio Congressmember Jim Jordan of begging him not to corroborate accounts of widespread sexual abuse perpetrated by Strauss, after DiSabato’s brother, Mike, exposed the abuse. A 2019 university report found that at least 177 people were abused by Strauss, who died by suicide in 2005. A number of the college wrestlers say Jim Jordan, who was an OSU assistant wrestling coach at the time, knew about and did not report the abuse.
