Michigan State athletes have been ordered to not speak out about former MSU and USA gymnastics Doctor Larry Nassar.

That's according to a motion filed late Friday in Grand Rapids.

The motion is looking to add a current MSU scholarship athlete to a federal lawsuit against Nassar.

The athlete claims Nassar sexually assaulted her for several years.

She and her teammates have been told by Michigan State to not take any questions from the media or police regarding the matter.

Currently 22 alleged victims are suing Nassar, Michigan State University, USA gymnastics and Twistars Gymnastics in Dimondale for sexual assault.

He denies any wrongdoing.

Nassar is currently in jail on child pornography charges, after thousands of images were found on his computer.
