A law firm representing Ohio State University says claims about a former school physician allege sexual misconduct in his interactions and at his private, off-campus practice. 

Investigators and the university haven't publicly disclosed details about the allegations involving Richard Strauss' practice, how those claims came to light or to what extent they are part of the ongoing, independent investigation. The allegations were mentioned without elaboration when a lawyer updated university officials in early June about the investigation into Strauss, who died in 2005. Athletes from more than a dozen teams have reported sexual misconduct by Strauss.
