COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Latest on reports about alleged sexual misconduct by a former Ohio State University doctor (all times local):
The personnel file of a former Ohio State University doctor offers no clues that the university was aware of alleged sexual misconduct by the doctor.
The file of the late Dr. Richard Strauss released Thursday shows high-ranking university officials congratulating Strauss as various appointments were announced over the years.
That includes praise for Strauss meeting “the high standards of your faculty peers and of this University” from former Ohio State president Edward Jennings in 1983.
Strauss says in a 1980 letter that he was spending about 20 percent of his time working in clinical sports medicine with varsity athletes.
The university said Thursday that former male student-athletes from more than a dozen athletic teams have now reported sexual misconduct by Strauss, who died in 2005.

An attorney handling the probe on behalf of Ohio State told a trustees committee that 130 people have been interviewed who provided information “relevant to the investigation.” Reports also came from former patients of Student Health Services.
Ohio State University President Michael Drake had asked alumni for help with the investigation, sending an email last month to more than 100,000 who attended the university from the mid-1970s to the mid-1990s, when the alleged misconduct occurred.
