MSU officials deny Nessel’s latest request for 6,000 unredacted Nassar documents

East Lansing – Michigan State University’s Board of Trustees will not waive attorney-client privilege over nearly 6,000 documents withheld from the university’s investigation into sexual assault allegations by Larry Nassar.

Officials have withheld the documents for more than six years from the investigation launched by the Prosecutor General’s Office. A district judge ruled that the documents should not be disclosed because of the attorney-client privilege.

Trustee Rema Vassar, the board’s chairwoman, said the board’s general counsel will send a letter to Attorney General Dana Nessel denying his latest request to release the unredacted documents. Vassar apologized to the survivors but defended the decision to reporters on Friday.
