Nassar survivor, mother speak out about private meeting with Engler

Nassar survivor, mother speak out about private meeting with Engler

"I wanted for a long time for Engler to meet Kaylee", Lisa Lorincz said.

"We need a change in who's sitting in front of us", one man shouted in reference to Engler and the board. I asked if we could speak to him, just so that I could introduce myself, as a Survivor of Larry Nassar. "They clearly knew she was represented because they were bad mouthing me and (another attorney) during the meeting".

"What he did not tell us is that Ms. Viventi is his lawyer".

Lorincz told those at the Board of Trustees meeting that she felt very uncomfortable in the private meeting with Engler, especially when Engler told her that Rachael Denhollander - the first Nassar victim to publicly come forward with her story of abuse by Nassar, back in September 2016 - had already given him a settlement number.

Wearing teal t-shirts in support of Nassar's victims, protesters repeatedly disrupted the Board of Trustees meeting, shouting over Interim President John Engler and other board members who discussed topics ranging from the fallout over the Nassar scandal to room and board rates. I told him how much I love MSU and wanted to help them heal, to make real change. Engler said they could not work together until the civil suits were settled.

"My interpretation of the discussion was not that he was saying I'm offering you $250,000, it was a discussion about the civil litigation and how it was going on", said Guerrant, who added that she was in attendance for the meeting.

"I felt like I was being bullied into saying something and that if Rachael gave him a settlement amount, it was okay for me to do it too".

"He tried to convince them that I was doing backroom deals with him", Denhollander said. Carol Viventi, Vice President and Special Counsel to the President, was also in the meeting she said. That's what a civil case is about, money'. Lorincz checked with Denhollander, who she said she'd never met Engler.




The teenager revealed this all on Friday at the board meeting she had been going to try and secure a spot at when she had the alleged meeting.

"There's new leadership in nearly all of these places, so I think the ability of Michigan State to respond is dramatically different and better than it was a year ago", he said.

"President Engler, you wanted to talk about money, and I wanted to talk about helping and healing", Lorincz said. You tried to make us feel like we were the problem and MSU was the victim because of the civil suits. "Only later did I find out she was your lawyer", Lorincz said during the public comment portion of the meeting.

"When you protect and promote a sexual predator and foster a culture of lies and coverups, you are responsible", she said.

Engler read a statement earlier in Friday's meeting to express regret for how the school handled a separate lawsuit filed earlier this week that alleges three Michigan State basketball players raped a female student. Given the current litigation, opportunities to speak with survivors are rare.

"Our memories and interpretations of the March 28 meeting are different than hers", Engler said.

She said Engler looked angry while she spoke at Friday's meeting. "No one other than Kaylee has met with him". Regardless, since mediation of all claims begins on April 25, there will be an appropriate place for discussions concerning what would be a fair and equitable resolution.
