Medical board: Info on doctor investigation must stay secret

Combined Shape

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The State Medical Board says a judge shouldn’t let Ohio State University publicly share information from an old board investigation involving a team doctor accused of decades-old sexual misconduct.

In a court filing Tuesday, the board says its records on the investigation involving Richard Strauss are confidential under state law. It says Ohio State’s lawyers received the information under a legal exemption and are required to keep it secret.

A law firm is investigating allegations about Strauss for Ohio State. The school plans to make the findings public and is seeking permission to include information about the old investigation .

The medical board argues such disclosure would undermine witnesses’ trust and its future investigations.

Over 150 alumni allege misconduct by Strauss. He killed himself in 2005.
