The University of Michigan has reportedly agreed to a $490 million settlement with the sex abuse victims of former university doctor Robert Anderson.
Victims say Anderson would sexually assault them during routine examinations. More than a thousand victims were allegedly abused during Anderson’s 37-year career at the school, which lasted from 1966 to 2003. He died in 2008.
An investigation found that the university missed multiple chances to put a stop to Anderson’s abuse.
An attorney says the settlement will be split among 1,050 victims. An official statement from the school is expected sometime Wednesday. That is just under 500k per victim which while it may not take away the trauma, it is a step in the right direction to making it right!
