The University of Michigan has reached a $490 million settlement with former athletes and other Michigan students who sued the school claiming they had been sexually assaulted by a former football team doctor.

As reported by the Detroit Free Press, there are 1,050 former athletes and other Michigan students suing the university in federal court. The suits claim the university failed to act when it knew Robert Anderson, who worked at the university from 1968-2003 and died in 2008, was sexually assaulting students.

Much of the settlement monies will be split between those who have sued the school, while a portion will be set aside for future claims, the Free Press reported.
