Steven Snyder-Hill, who claims he was abused by former Ohio State team doctor Richard Strauss, is now a lead plaintiff in a lawsuit against the school.

One of the men alleging sexual abuse by now-dead Ohio State team doctor Richard Strauss says he has filed two related complaints with the State Medical Board of Ohio. 

Steven Snyder-Hill says one complaint alleges university President Michael Drake, an ophthalmologist, violated professional ethics and that his school broke laws about sharing public records.

Snyder-Hill says his other complaint alleges that former student health director Ted Grace mishandled a complaint about misbehavior by Strauss in 1995.

Messages seeking comment were left with Ohio State and Grace.

Because of confidentiality rules, the medical board won't confirm or comment on complaints unless they result in disciplinary action.
