Several more names are added to a federal lawsuit in the Larry Nassar case, including two former and current MSU employees.

The new complaint names Jeffrey Kovan, MSU's Director of Sports Medicine and William Strampel, the Dean of Osteopathic Medicine who put restrictions on Nassar following a 2014 investigation.

The lawsuit also names former MSU Gymnastics Coach Kathie Klages, who retired last month, former professor Gary Stollak and the owner of Twistars, John Geddert.

All five were added to the lawsuit that has more than 40 plaintiff so far, alleging abuse for years during what they were told was a medical treatment.
