Jordan Doubles Down That Abuse Reports Are Attacks From Left

Edelman is advising Ohio State University on the sex abuse investigation linked to Richard Strauss, the deceased doctor of the school's wresting team, according to a report in Politico.

Paperwork from 1995 shows a student health center director said a student's complaint about sexual misconduct by an Ohio State University doctor during an exam was the first such complaint he'd received.

Five former wrestlers filed two class-action lawsuits against Ohio State on Tuesday, charging administrators of failing to act after learning of alleged complaints to the school's athletic and health departments about Strauss' actions more than 20 years ago.

"We are grateful to those who have come forward and remain deeply concerned for anyone who may have been affected by Dr. Strauss' actions", said Ohio State President Michael V. Drake. But most of the universities he listed as former employers won't say if they're reviewing either potential connections or whether concerns were raised about him.

At least eight former OSU wrestlers have come forward alleging that Jordan knew about the abuse when he was a coach and claimed allegations were widely discussed in the locker room.

Strauss died in 2005. His family has said they were "shocked and saddened" to learn of the allegations.

Both lawsuits seek unspecified monetary damages and propose to represent all Ohio State students mistreated by Strauss.

"We remain steadfastly committed to uncovering the truth", he added.

"Ohio State is an institution that chose to protect its image and its brand rather than protect its students and its athletes from the sexual misconduct of the team doctor", Sharp said.

"We are aware of reports that individuals at the university did not respond appropriately during that era", said Benjamin Johnson, a spokesman for the university.

Ten former wrestlers, some of them Jordan supporters, have told NBC News and other media outlets that Strauss performed medically unnecessary examinations where they were fondled and groped. They include students who, at the time, were varsity players in 14 sports and patients of Student Health Services.

"I was interviewed by the folks doing the outside investigation for Ohio State, the folks at Perkins Coie", Jordan said Wednesday.

More than 100 ex-students interviewed reported "firsthand accounts" of being victimized by Strauss, the university said.

"Once they wrote me back and said that, then I was on fire, because then, I was just like, I want to validate every single person it happened to, because it was real and it happened to me", he told CBS affiliate WBNS.

An Ohio State assistant coach has been charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass stemming from a dispute with his ex-wife.
