SafeSport Issues Lifetime Ban

Female High School Volleyball Team Have Team Talk From Coach

SafeSport issued a lifetime ban barring a once-celebrated U.S. figure skating coach from participating in the sport.

The ruling came twenty years after the coach’s governing body, U.S. Figure Skating, refused to act to the allegations because, under the national governing body’s rules, the allegations had not been filed in a timely fashion.

The allegations by Craig Maurizi, who accused Richard Callaghan of abusing him from about 1977 to 1986, were first made in the late 1990s, but U.S. Figure Skating essentially dismissed the allegations because they had not been filed within the 60-day window required by the organization’s rules.

Due Process

Callaghan’s lawyer questioned the due process afforded his client under SafeSport’s rules.
