Scott Smith, an attorney representing the 43 Strauss victims, said Friday the former doctor's abuse should not focus on Jordan, but OSU as a whole complicit institution.

Richard Strauss' actions are reprehensible, and we remain deeply concerned for all those who have been affected by Strauss," the school said in a statement. Many of the lawsuit's 43 plaintiffs dropped out of OSU and never earned a college degree, the suit says, and several still suffer debilitating anxiety and reported experiencing confusion with their sexuality.
