Lawyers representing more than 90 girls and women who were sexually assaulted by ex-disgraced USA
Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar filed claims worth more than one billion dollars in compensation to FBI and said that investigators
could have stopped Nassar's sex predation and helped protect other victims if they hadn't negligently handled the matter.
The defendants are Olympic gymnasts Simone Biles, Aly Raisman and McKayla Maroney
world championship medalist Maggie Nichols. Each has demanded $50 million, as per the law firm representing them.
Gymnasts Kaylee Lorincz and Hannah Morrow are each asking for $42.5 million,
the attorneys said. Lawyers say most of the 90 women are asking for $10 million each
in total, the sum would be in the $1 billion to $1.2 billion range.
Under the Federal Tort Claims Act, claimants are required to give notice to the federal agency before a lawsuit is filed in federal court.
