State officials say the complaints involve the trainer licenses of Destiny Teachnor-Hauk and Lianna Hadden.

The complaints state students informed both about discomfort during treatments by Nassar.

Licensing officials say Teachnor-Hauk and Hadden denied being told that by students.

Teachnor-Hauk and Hadden can file responses to the complaints. Sanctions include fines, license suspension, and revocation.

Their attorney didn't respond to a message Wednesday from The Associated Press.

A Michigan State spokeswoman says the school is reviewing the complaints.

Hundreds of girls and women said Nassar molested them while he worked for Michigan State and Indiana-based USA Gymnastics. He is in prison for sexually assaulting patients and possessing child pornography.
