Krieg DeVault Partner Deborah J. Daniels, hired in November 2016 by USA Gymnastics to lead an investigation of the policies and practices relating to the protection of young athletes from abuse, was recently featured on WTHR Channel 13 in an exclusive interview discussing her 2017 report to USA Gymnastics and the concerns its findings pose for athletes and governing bodies in other sports.
In June 2017, Daniels presented her report (now widely referred to as the "Daniels Report") to the USA Gymnastics Board of Directors, outlining her recommendations to the organization following a six-month policy review. Her report, which has garnered national media attention, called for a complete change in the culture of USA Gymnastics. It encompassed 70 recommendations for improvement, and called for mandatory immediate reporting of sexual abuse allegations to proper legal authorities.
