Quote: "Anderson died 12 years ago [2008]" "The University of Michigan appears eager to write a different story. It doesn’t dispute that Anderson was an abuser. Indeed, the chair of the board of regents said that he too was harmed by the doctor, back when he wrestled for the university. The university has apologized."

"Our police investigation found indications that U of M staff members were aware of rumors and allegations of misconduct during Dr. Anderson's medical exams. To those who reported Dr. Anderson, and to anyone who's come forward to report sexual misconduct in any case, I express my sincere gratitude for your courage."

"The University of Michigan has agreed to a $490 million settlement with those who claimed they were sexually abused by the late university sports doctor Robert Anderson."
