  • The lawsuit is among at least a half-dozen that USA Gymnastics is currently facing. All allege the Olympic national governing body failed to protect young athletes from alleged sexual abuse.
    As a search committee works to select USA Gymnastics' new CEO, the Georgia Court of Appeals has allowed a lawsuit to proceed against the Olympic organization.

    The new CEO will replace Steve Penny, who resigned in March in the midst of a growing sexual abuse scandal uncovered by a year-long IndyStar investigation. Here you can get a good quality Customized Gymnastics Logo which do you prefer? The job will include the challenge of restoring the image of the Indianapolis-based nonprofit responsible for setting the standard for the sport at all levels and selecting the Olympic team.

    The new leader's task will be complicated by the specter of several pending lawsuits, including the case in Georgia involving a former gymnast who was secretly videotaped by her coach, William McCabe, while changing clothes.

    But the person selected to succeed Penny also will have the benefit of recommendations from a review, commissioned last year by the USA Gymnastics board of directors, examining the organization's policies and procedures related to the handling of abuse allegations.

    In the Georgia lawsuit seeking unspecified monetary damages, the former gymnast contends McCabe was able to harm her because USA Gymnastics was negligent in ignoring at least four prior complaints about alleged sexual misconduct involving the coach, who had been a member of the organization. He continued coaching for seven years after the first of those warnings. It was during that time that McCabe videotaped the former gymnast identified only as "Jane Doe" in the lawsuit.

    Attorneys for USA Gymnastics have argued in court documents that it was not responsible for the actions of McCabe, who was convicted in 2006 on federal charges of sexual exploitation of children and making false statements and is serving a 30-year sentence. They asked state court Judge Ronald Thompson to dismiss the suit on summary judgement, but the judge ruled in August that the case filed in 2013 should go to trial.
