The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs says it found no evidence that Dr. Douglas Dietzel violated the public health code.

Dietzel is the head of the MSU sports clinic where Larry Nassar worked. A spokesperson for L.A.R.A. says it opened a complaint on Dietzel on March 8th based on media reports. 
L.A.R.A. tells us investigations into six other licensees are still going on. They include Nassar's former boss William Strampel, and doctors Jeffrey Kovan and Brooke Lemmen who worked with Nassar.

The state is also investigating if athletic trainers Destiny Teachnor-Hauk and Lianna Hadden violated the public health code, as well as former clinical psychologist Dr. Gary Stollak. All of those licensees, as well as Dr. Douglas Dietzel -- are also named in lawsuits regarding Nassar.

We'll keep you posted on what becomes of the remaining investigations and those lawsuits.
