A judge in the criminal sex abuse case against former MSU sports doctor Larry Nassar has issued a new order to prohibit attorneys and witnesses from speaking publicly about the case.
The judge says it's necessary to prevent a "carnival atmosphere" and an unfair trial for Nassar.
Nassar is accused of sexually abusing girls he was treating.
Nassar also faces civil lawsuits filed by more than 80 other women who say he sexually abused them.
Attorneys for those women say the gag order also applies to them, and is unconstitutional.
They are seeking to overturn the order in federal court.
