A judge says lawyers for men who allege they were sexually abused decades ago by an Ohio State University team doctor should get to see the unredacted findings of a law firm that investigated the claims for the university. 

The public version released last week blacked out details related to an old, confidential State Medical Board investigation involving Richard Strauss. The federal judge overseeing related lawsuits against the school ruled Friday that Ohio State must provide the full report to the plaintiffs' attorneys in the mediation process.
