  • Federal investigations and legislation prompted by Larry Nassar

Additionally, the suit alleges Nassar exposed Moore's genitalia to an underage female gymnast. The lawsuit alleges he sometimes had an erection, according to NBC News.

Raisman also added concerns about gymnasts in the US. In a statement released Friday, she said she filed the lawsuit in the hopes "the legal process will hold them accountable and enable the change that is so desperately needed".

Raisman has called for an independent investigation of the U.S. Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics by federal authorities.

MacKay Moore, a former member of the US women's junior national team, was among those who testified, and she detailed how, starting at age 10, she was befriended by Nassar and groomed for his "special treatment".

Captain of the gold-medal winning 2012 and 2016 US women's Olympic gymnastics teams, Raisman says USA Gymnastics ignored her repeated complaints about Nassar.

"Plaintiff Jacob Moore believes the conduct of Dr. Nassar was sexual assault, battery, abuse, molestation and harassment performed by Defendant Nassar for Defendant Nassar's sexual pleasure and gratification", the complaint continues.

Former Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar appears in court for his final sentencing phase in Eaton County Circuit Court, Feb. 5, 2018 in Charlotte, Michigan. Raisman said earlier this year USA Gymnastics told her "to be quiet" when she first reported the abuse. "I refuse to wait any longer for these organizations to do the right thing", Raisman said in a statement, per the Associated Press.

Moore, who is now a freshman gymnast at the University of Michigan, joined his sister in a federal lawsuit Wednesday against Nassar, USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University, where Nassar worked.

On Wednesday, the USOC chief executive, Scott Blackmun, stood down from his post for health reasons. The Committee also announced reform to help protect athletes from abuse.

The USOC and USA Gymnastics, the suit said, "Failed to implement reasonable safeguards to avoid acts of unlawful sexual conduct by (Nassar) in the future, including avoiding placement of Nassar in a position where contact and interaction with children is an inherent function".

John Manly, Raisman's attorney, accused the U.S. Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics of "a conspiracy to silence victims and cover-up the largest child sex abuse scandal in history". She also listed a number of actions the organization is taking, including closing down the Karolyi Ranch training center, requiring mandatory reporting of abuse, and making it easier to report such abuse.
