USA Gymnastics Files for Bankruptcy Amid Sex Abuse Scandal

USA Gymnastics  filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Wednesday as it deals with the aftermath of a sex abuse scandal surrounding former team doctor Larry Nassar.  In a statement , the organization said the filing will let it "fully operate" while resolving abuse claims involving Nassar.

Nassar was sentenced  to 40-175 years in prison on multiple criminal sexual abuse charges earlier this year.

Investigations, testimony and victim impact statements outlined widespread abuse of gymnasts connected to USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University at the hands of the former doctor.  The organization has seen a lot of changes in leadership amid fallout from the scandal.

Since March 2017,  three CEOs  and the entire board have resigned, among others.

A new board was appointed in June.

USA Gymnastics says it's working with the U.S. Olympic Committee to sort out next steps for the sport and implement initiatives to protect gymnasts.   Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
