A lawyer for Michigan State University tells Attorney General Bill Schuette that no MSU officials knew about the predatory behavior of the gymnastics team doctor. 

The letter says MSU officials first learned of allegations regarding Doctor Larry Nassar last year from newspaper reports. And it says any criminal behavior would have been referred to the proper law enforcement agency.

But MSU will not provide a copy of its internal review with Schuette because, the letter says, there is no report to share. Andrea Bitely is Schuette’s press secretary. She says this may not be the final word.

“There are many options on the table." Bitely says. "We’re reviewing the letter to determine our next steps.”

MSU offered to brief Schuette on its inquiry, but the school also said it has to protect its legal position in lawsuits filed by families of Nassar’s victims.
