LANSING, MI (MPRN)--   Lawmakers in Lansing say a settlement between Michigan State University and survivors of Larry Nassar doesn’t mean their quest for justice is over. 

Nassar is the former university sports doctor who sexually assaulted his patients under the guise of treatment. More than 300 survivors are suing the school for not stopping him, and MSU faces a potential 500 million dollar settlement.

In the Legislature, lawmakers have crafted more than 30 bills in response to what Nassar did.

LANSING, MI (MPRN)--   Lawmakers in Lansing are focused on giving some crime victims more rights and protections. 

Governor Rick Snyder will have to decide if convicted criminals should be required to listen to their victims in court. The legislation, on its way to his desk, is in response to a defendant who was convicted of killing a woman – but who left the courtroom during the family’s statements.
