    Lawsuit, ex-student focus on complaints about Ohio State doc

    Four former wrestlers say in a new lawsuit that Ohio State University officials ignored repeated complaints about ''rampant sexual misconduct'' by a now-dead team doctor, and a former student confirmed Tuesday that investigators have documentation about at least one decades-old incident that prompted a complaint. Former student Steve Snyder-Hill said he wrote to a student health center official in the 1990s after being examined by Dr. Richard Strauss, whose behavior is the subject of an independent investigation that began months ago. Ohio State says allegations raised in recent months about Strauss involve male athletes from 14 sports, as well as the physician's work at the student health center and his off-campus medical office.
