CHARLOTTE, Mich. (AP) - A former doctor at Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics has been ordered to stand trial in Michigan in another sexual assault case.

An Eaton County judge made the ruling Friday after three alleged victims testified against Dr. Larry Nassar.

The 53-year-old Nassar is charged with multiple counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Last week,an Ingham County judge ordered Nassar to stand trial on charges of sexually assaulting six young gymnasts who said they were molested while seeking treatment for injuries.

He separately faces child pornography charges in federal court.

Nassar and Michigan State also are being sued by dozens of women and girls. A motion filed Friday in federal court seeks to add 23 more plaintiffs.

Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics is a defendant in some of the lawsuits.
