Former Dean of the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Michigan State University, William Strampel, has been charged criminal sexual conduct, along with one felony count of misconduct in office and two other misdemeanor charges, CNN reports citing court documents.

Why it matters: Strampel was Larry Nassar's boss at the university and dismissed a complaint in 2014 from one of Nassar's victims, issuing "new guidelines" for Nassar, but not enforcing them nor informed the university's health team about them, per CNN. Nassar abused more than 200 victims during his time as MSU and USA gymnastics doctor, until his arrest in 2016.

The details: CNN reports that Strampel's charges include a "felony count of misconduct in office," a "fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct" charge, and "two charges of willful neglect of duty."

  • Strampel had a video of Nassar performing his "treatment" on a female patient on his computer, along with other pornographic videos and photos, many of them appearing "to be selfies of female MSU students."
  • He is set to be arraigned Tuesday afternoon, though he is still a tenured MSU professor, a title that could take up to a year to be revoked, CNN reports. He cited "health problems" after resigning as dean in December.

Louisville officer: "Breonna Taylor would be alive" if we had served no-knock warrant

Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, the Louisville officer who led the botched police raid that caused the death of Breonna Taylor, said the No. 1 thing he wishes he had done differently is either served a "no-knock" warrant or given five to 10 seconds before entering the apartment: "Breonna Taylor would be alive, 100 percent."

Driving the news: Mattingly, who spoke to ABC News and Louisville's Courier Journal for his public interview, was shot in the leg in the initial moments of the March 13 raid. Mattingly did not face any charges after Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said he and another officer were "justified" in returning fire to protect themselves against Taylor's boyfriend.

U.S. vs. Google — the siege begins

The Justice Department fired the starter pistol on what's likely to be a years-long legal siege of Big Tech by the U.S. government when it filed a major antitrust suit Tuesday against Google.

The big picture: Once a generation, it seems, federal regulators decide to take on a dominant tech company. Two decades ago, Microsoft was the target; two decades before that, IBM.

Why the stimulus delay isn't a crisis (yet)

If the impasse between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the White House on a new stimulus deal is supposed to be a crisis, you wouldn't know it from the stock market, where prices continue to rise.

  • That's been in no small part because U.S. economic data has held up remarkably well in recent months thanks to the $2 trillion CARES Act and Americans' unusual ability to save during the crisis.
