Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman has filed suit against the U.S. Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics alleging negligence in their handling of the sexual abuse allegations by team doctor Larry Nassar, per the AP. The news of her lawsuit follows reports that the FBI launched its own internal investigation of its failure to properly respond to complaints about Nassar's abuse.

ā€” Aly Raisman
