Ohio State abuse scandal subject of documentary produced by George Clooney
George Clooney is producing a documentary about a massive abuse scandal at Ohio State Universitywhere hundreds of athletes Dr. Richard Strauss accused her of sexually abusing her between 1978 and 1998. Strauss was team doctor for 17 college sports.
- The documentary is based on a 2020 Sports Illustrated story by Jon Werthein, “Why Aren’t More People Talking About the Ohio State Sex Abuse Scandal?” Congressman Jim Jordan, who was an assistant wrestler while Strauss was the team doctor , knowingly ignored the abuse, Werthein claimed in the Sports Illustrated story.
- OSU has settled $59.7 million in claims from 286 victims. However, almost half of the prosecutors have not reached an agreement. More than 2,000 allegations of abuse have been documented.
- dr Strauss took his own life in 2005.

2) After two weeks on the CDC’s “high” alert list for COVID-19, Cuyahoga County was downgraded to moderate status. That means the CDC is no longer recommending that all county residents wear masks in public places, regardless of vaccination status. The rating is based on new and active hospital admissions.
3) The Ohio Attorney General will investigate two Cleveland shootings involving officers. Datwaun Catchings, 22, was shot dead after a Maple Heights police chase ended in Cleveland. The fangs pointed a gun at police, authorities said. Demond Eskridge, 42, was shot dead while fighting with Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority police. Eskridge threw a mattress and a television off a balcony, then bit a police officer, was shot with a stun gun and fought with police officers before being shot, police said.
4) FirstEnergy Stadium will receive $10 million in tax-funded repairs, including $3 million to replace the rusted and damaged pedestrian ramps that carry people to the upper floors. The ramps are a safety issue, according to city officials. Other repairs include a new heater and replacement doors and lights. Under the terms of the Cleveland Browns’ lease with the city, Cleveland pays for all repairs with funds collected through sin taxes.
