MSU President John Engler released a statement Wednesday morning stating that he is pleased to restart mediation with Nassar survivors.
“Michigan State University is pleased that mediation will restart. The university remains committed to reaching a fair settlement with all the survivors. Former Federal Judge Layn Phillips will be a strong, independent mediator, and we have confidence he will work hard to bring the parties to a resolution.
“I came to MSU with the intention of concluding the lawsuits as soon as possible in a fair and just manner. The survivors should not have to endure years of litigation. The postponement of plaintiffs’ litigation responses until May 10 gives both parties time to enter into mediation and work toward an equitable settlement.”
