After Nassar, Michigan lawmakers OK bill that would cut aid to colleges that don't meet new rules

She said Engler looked angry while she spoke at Friday's meeting.

"He then proceeded to attack my attorneys, who had no idea that this meeting was taking place", she said. Lorincz would not cede the microphone until she was done reading her statement, which she did as police approached the podium and she was continually told her time was up. Carol Viventi said "Well you're in civil litigation, aren't you?"

Nassar - a former sports doctor who is in prison for molesting female patients under the guise of treatment - worked at Michigan State, which is facing scrutiny for its handling of the physician who also treated top Olympians for USA Gymnastics. "Five minutes turned into an hour".

Lorincz is one of more than 200 women who have filed civil lawsuits claiming sexual assault abuse from Nassar, including Olympic gymnasts Aly Raisman and Simone Biles.

The atmosphere inside the board meeting quickly drew tension as Engler attempted to steer focus toward celebrating milestones of the university but was usurped by boos and jeers from a crowd clad in teal shirts with the phrase, "I stand with the sister survivors #MeTooMSU". After her meeting, Lorincz reached out to Denhollander by phone and got an entirely different story: Denhollander informed her that not only had she never given Engler a dollar amount for a settlement, she has never even had a one-on-one meeting with him.

"I want to make it clear from the Legislature that we want people to listen and the leadership of your university is going to know about any Title IX case you make", he said. "Only later did I find out she was your lawyer", Lorincz said during the public comment portion of the meeting.

"Michigan State clearly looks at these women as the enemy, and if you have any doubt about that, I think we can all agree that President Engler just threatened a 4'8" little girl, saying, 'You better be careful, ' simply because she's using her voice", Manly told ThinkProgress on Friday.

"The simple truth is we can not allow something this serious to be mishandled ever again", said Republican Rep. Kim LaSata of Berrien County's Bainbridge Township, who chairs the House subcommittee and helped lead a legislative probe of Michigan State.

Lorincz said she felt "bullied" by Engler.

Engler didn't make any attempt to deny Lorincz's claims during the trustees meeting.

Lorincz recalled another horrifying part of that private meeting with Engler - when he referred to the recent arrest of former College of Osteopathic Medicine Dean William Strampel as "no big deal ... just a slap on the butt". My jaw dropped, and I said "just a slap on the butt?"

Trustees Mitch Lyons and Brian Mosallam were stunned by the allegations.

"I met with Kaylee and Lisa Lorincz's on March 28". And committee chair, Senator Tonya Schuitmaker (R-Lawton) said the committee discussed penalties for the school, but decided against it.

Those services came under fire this week when a former student filed a federal Title IX lawsuit alleging she was raped by three unnamed members of the school's basketball team in April 2015.

At Friday's hearing, though, Engler expressed regret over his school's initial statement in that response, which "provided an unnecessary amount of detail" that may have violated the woman's privacy. When you protect and promote a sexual predator, and foster a culture of lies and cover ups, you are responsible'.

"Due to extensive media reporting about issues involving Michigan State University, the foundation has lost confidence in our partnership with the university".
