SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The law firm of Estey & Bomberger announces that several University of Michigan sexual misconduct victims of Dr. Robert E. Anderson have retained the firm for a probable lawsuit against the University. The names of the male victims are withheld at this time. Dr. Anderson served as the former University of Michigan Athletic Department Team Physician and University Health Service Director.
"Survivors are coming forward so that the University can right a wrong for the many alumni living with the effects of sexual abuse," attorney Mike Bomberger said. The school reportedly provided Dr. Anderson with the opportunity to sexually abuse students for 24 years after he was removed as University Health Service Director.
Estey & Bomberger is also part of the legal team representing 85 Ohio State sexual abuse victims of Dr. Richard Strauss for nearly two years. "Our track record demonstrates that we will fight for survivors, no matter how long it takes to get justice," attorney Stephen Estey said. "There is no doubt that the recent news coverage has triggered PTSD for many victims who repressed this memory for years or even decades. The University needs to recognize this, help these victims, and not hide behind legal tactics to delay and deny justice."
“There are numerous similarities between the Ohio State and Michigan cases,” Bomberger said. “In both cases, it took courageous alumni to come forward with their stories. By doing so, we are now learning that high level officials at both institutions were aware of sexual misconduct and did nothing.”
The award-winning trial attorneys at Estey & Bomberger have been helping survivors of sexual abuse for over twenty years, both financially and through the healing process while achieving the highest per-person verdicts for these types of cases.
