Our Michigan doctor sex assault lawsuit lawyers are investigation cases against Dr. Zvi Levran, M.D. — a hockey doctor working with youth hockey players for the past twenty years in Minnesota and metro Detroit.
Dr. Zvi Levran is a board certified urologist with an office in West Bloomfield, Michigan. He specializes in adult and pediatric urology and is a member on several professional societies. He has been in the active practice of medicine for over 25 years.
Dr. Levran was arraigned earlier this month in Farmington Hills, Michigan. He was charged with ten counts of criminal sexual conduct and at the court proceeding. He was released on a $1,000,000 total cash surety bound with a GPS tether after the hearing in the Farmington Hills District Court. He entered a not guilty plea.
Dr. Levran is accused of assault young male hockey players during medical exams. Many of these exams were performed in his home office. Other complaints are apparently “inundating police” with respect to potential sexual assaults against other youth hockey players. He is innocent until proven guilty, and police are investigating all leads.
Dr. Zvi Levran Sexual Assault Update April, 2023
In April, 2023, a preliminary exam was held in the 47th District Court in Farmington Hills, Michigan on one of the criminal counts against Dr. Zvi Levran. In that court is an aggregate case of 31 total counts of criminal sexual conduct, including charges from 13 different victims. Dr. Levran had connections to their hockey teams as a yoga instructor and team physician. Witnesses testified about the doctor performing unnecessary prostate exams, massaging their genitals, and making crude, sexual remarks.
Dr. Levran is also facing four additional criminal sexual conduct charges from two additional cases out of the 48th district court. He has pleaded not guilty on all 35 counts.
Under the law, he is innocent until proven guilty in his criminal cases. In civil lawsuits seeking money compensation by complainants, the standard for finding him liable for damages is by a “preponderance of the evidence,” which is a lesser standard than in criminal cases. Even if he were to be found not guilty for his criminal charges, he can still be held accountable in civil cases.
What Are the Rights of Doctor Sexual Assault Victims?
Victims of sexual assaults by doctors do have the legal right to demand compensation. Compensation is demanded through the filing of a sexual assault lawsuit against the doctor perpetrator.
These cases have received significant notoriety in recent years due to lawsuits filed against Dr. Larry Nassar (Michigan State University) , Dr. Robert Anderson (University of Michigan), and Dr. Richard Strauss (Ohio State University). Other sex assault lawsuits have been filed in other states as well.
