Statement from former Supreme Court Chief Justice Bob Young, special counsel for MSU, March 28, 2018

As a result of new plaintiffs and new claims being filed in federal court, the court ordered MSU to respond to these filings by today. Tonight we have done that. Importantly, together with the plaintiffs we have agreed that no responses are required until May 10 so as to allow time for mediation. MSU remains committed to reaching a fair and equitable settlement at the earliest possible opportunity. We continue to feel that is in the best interest of the survivors and all other parties.
