We're learning of a new lawsuit against former USA Gymnastics National Team Doctor Larry Nassar.

The suit claims an assault against Nassar was covered up dating all the way back to 1992 while he was an an Osteopathic Physician at Michigan State University.

It details that in the spring of 1992 a student athlete sought treatment and Nassar allegedly drugged her prior to an examination to the point where she couldn't move.

"Because msu took no action to investigate the 1997 or 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001 or 2002, and 2004 complaints and took no corrective action, from at least 1997 to 2016, under the guise of treatment, the other plaintiffs, many of whom were minors, were also sexually assaulted, abused, and molested by defendant Nassar," the suit claims.

A short time later she witnessed Dr. Larry Nassar raping her and videotaping everything.

The student claims she went to her coach.

Her coach then brought it to the Michigan State University Athletic Director's attention, George Perles.

The director did intervene and the video retrieve, but charges were later dropped against Nassar.

The student also claims in the suit she was forced to sign a non disclosure, resign, and return the video.

Nassar was convicted of multiple counts of sexual assault spanning over 20 years.
