Bills would give Nassar’s victims a 90-day window to sue retroactivelyAthletic trainers would be required to report suspected abuseThe bills go to the Senate nextVictims of childhood sexual assaults would have more time to sue and athletic trainers would be required to report suspected abuse under wide-ranging legislation passing in Michigan after the Larry Nassar case.The state House approved dozens of bills Thursday inspired by the scandal. They next go to the Senate.One measure would give Nassar’s victims a 90-day window to sue retroactively if they missed time limits. Many survivors reached a $500 million settlement with Michigan State University, but money was set aside for future claims and other entities such as USA Gymnastics still face lawsuits.The legislation would give more time to file charges in lesser-degree sexual assaults and require a third professional to be present when a physician gives treatment involving vaginal or anal penetration of a minor.
