University of Michigan and Dr. Robert E. Anderson Sexual Abuse Lawsuit

Sauder Schelkopf represents survivors of sexual abuse by Dr. Robert E. Anderson, the former director of University Health Service and a former athletic team physician, who worked at the University of Michigan from 1968 until his retirement in 2003. It was reported that a police investigative report makes “clear that officials at the University of Michigan were aware of sexual abuse allegations against Anderson, who died in 2008. It is not clear, however, why or how he moved as a practicing physician in another position at the university. The records paint a sweeping account of alleged sexual abuse for decades behind medical doors, and other UM officials who heard rumors about Anderson but did nothing to address them.”  Sauder Schelkopf currently represents many survivors of sexual misconduct in the Ohio State lawsuit, which the media says has “uncanny parallels” to the UM Dr. Anderson.
