The #MeToo movement has hit the Ohio State University athletic department with a double whammy, resulting in a flurry of legal activity in the past week, and one almost needs a program to keep straight who are the lawyers on which issue.

OSU brought in Debevoise & Plimpton partner Mary Jo White, former U.S. attorney in Manhattan and ex-chair of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, to head that one.
