Former San Jose State U top trainer found responsible for sexual misconduct in state probe

San Jose State University

San Jose State University’s longtime sports medicine director, who resigned in August amid reports he sexually abused female athletes more than a decade ago, has been found responsible for at least five of those women’s claims in a series of state Title IX investigations.

The investigations, conducted by private attorneys under the supervision of the California State University System, determined that Scott Shaw’s physical therapy treatments lacked medical basis, ignored proper protocols and violated the system’s sexual harassment policies.

The findings were issued Friday morning in separate letters to the women. There were at least 10 investigations in all – one for each complainant – all of which might have come to different conclusions. Shounak Dharap, an attorney who represents some of the athletes, told USA TODAY on Friday he was aware of at least five that have resulted in findings of responsibility, adding that he expected to receive more.
