On May 29, 2019, 37 former male athletes from Ohio State University filed a Title IX lawsuit against the school. They are alleging that university officials did not stop Dr. Richard Strauss from sexually abusing students during physical examinations and other medical treatments.
The lawsuit, which was filed in Columbus in the U.S. District Court, only names one plaintiff. The other 36 are listed as John Does. The named plaintiff is a former OSU wrestler, Mike DiSabato. While Strauss committed suicide in 2005, he was never prosecuted for the alleged crimes.
