Son of former Michigan State AD says latest Larry Nassar lawsuit ‘a fabrication’


The son of Michigan State trustee George Perles said Wednesday that an allegation in a recent lawsuit that Perles covered up a rape by Larry Nassar in the early 1990s is a lie.

The lawsuit was filed Monday in federal court on behalf of a former Michigan State field hockey player who says she was drugged, raped and impregnated by Nassar in 1992. The woman, Erika Davis, states that she told her coach and another university employee about the rape. According to the lawsuit, Perles intervened when he learned about the allegations and went “to great lengths to conceal this conduct.”

Perles, 84, coached the Michigan State football team from 1983 to 1994 and also served as the school’s athletic director in the early 1990s. He has been a member of the board of trustees since 2007. Perles has no memory of a complaint made about a doctor raping a student-athlete during his time as athletic director, his son Pat said.

“His memory is remarkably good for a man his age,” Pat Perles said. “He doesn’t remember any of this because it never happened. There was no meeting with the field hockey coach. It certainly didn’t include this subject. It’s a fabrication.”
