Olympic gold-winning gymnast Aly Raisman has filed a lawsuit against the US Olympic Committee, USA Gymnastics, disgraced doctor Larry Nassar, and others, alleging the committee at its highest levels was aware that Nassar had molested gymnasts who participated with USA Gymnastics, stated cnn.

The suit was filed Wednesday in Santa Clara County Superior Court in California, according to usatoday.

According to the complaint, Nassar, the former doctor for Michigan State University athletics and the national gymnastics team, sexually abused Raisman at the Karolyi Ranch in Texas, national and international competitions and the 2012 London Olympics, stated nbcnews.

“My highest priority has been to push for change, so future generations of athletes will be safer,” Raisman said in a statement. “It has become painfully clear that these organizations have no intention of properly addressing this problem”, according to cnn.

“A simple fact is this: If USA Gymnastics and the US Olympic Committee had followed their own bylaws, policies and procedures designed to protect children from sexual abuse, Ms. Raisman never would have met him, never would have been ‘treated’ by him and never would have been molested by him,” Manly said, according to cnn.com.

That sentence will run concurrently with the 40-175-year sentence from nearby Ingham County. In the latter case, Nassar pleaded guilty to seven counts of criminal sexual conduct — three of which involved victims under age 13…, stated usatoday.
