Michigan State University attorneys are asking a federal judge to dismiss dozens of lawsuits filed by people who say they're victims of sexual abuse by Larry Nassar.

The lawsuits represent the second wave of plaintiffs filing suit against the university. 

The lawsuits were filed after MSU reached a $500 million settlement with more than 300 victims of Larry Nassar in June 2018.

Seven people have been charged with making fraudulent claims against the fund Michigan State University set up in the wake of the Larry Nassar scandal.

They have been charged with 22 felony counts for allegedly fraudulent claims that led to them receiving more than $527,000 from the Healing Assistance Fund.
