There are other lawsuits that have been filed against a number of others – such as the U.S. Olympic Committee, famed gymnastics coaches Bela and Martha Karolyi — that are not involved with this settlement and will be progressing in their respective cases.Robert Young, who is serving as special counsel to MSU, said the school “is pleased that we have been able to agree in principle on a settlement that is fair to the survivors of Nassar’s crimes.”“We appreciate the hard work both sides put into the mediation, and the efforts of the mediator, which achieved a result that is responsible and equitable,” Young said.Nassar, who served as the longtime doctor to the U.S. Olympic gymnastics team, was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison in January.Nassar faced charges on seven counts of criminal sexual misconduct in the first degree, to which he pleaded guilty to in November.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

We can look back on a unique and memorable history, and we are now a leading international high-technology corporation,” says CEO Walter Qvam of KONGSBERG.1814: The establishment of the Norwegian defence industryKongsberg weapons factory (KV) was founded by Poul Steenstrup, mining superintendent and participant at the national assembly at Eidsvoll, on 20 March 1814. This represented the establishment of Norway’s first factory, even before the industrial revolution in Norway.During the spring of 1814, Norway had gained its constitution. And the work of building the country’s first factory began in Kongsberg. The establishment of Kongsberg weapons factory in 1814 must be viewed in the light of other events of the same year. In January 1814, Norway had been ceded to Sweden, after centuries of union with Denmark. However, in Norway forces were working to give the country independence, and the need for a defence industry developed.From the industrial revolution to international high technology supplier KONGSBERG has experienced numerous eras, including Norway’s incipient industrial revolution in the 1800s, the development of the post-war technological industrialized Norway and the internationalization of Norwegian technology and expertise in the final decades until today.[mappress]Press Release, March 20, 2014; Image: Kongsberg View post tag: 200th View post tag: News by topic Back to overview,Home naval-today Norway: KONGSBERG Celebrates 200th Anniversary View post tag: celebrates View post tag: Naval KONGSBERG celebrates its 200th anniversary on 20 March.
