Update: 100’s More Lawsuits Filed
July 23, 2018 – USC has been hit with lawsuits from 51 more patients of George Tyndall as board chairman calls for expedited settlements. As more lawsuits pile up against USC for its handling of a campus gynecologist accused of sexually abusing patients, the chair of the university’s board of trustees said he wanted to see the litigation resolved “as quickly as possible.”
What’s the Problem?
June 22, 2018 – The class action claims that the USC gynecologist victimized thousands of women during his nearly 30-year tenure, and that the university allowed this by not taking any action, despite multiple complaints going back to the early 2000s.
The complaint was entered 2 weeks after 4 anonymous plaintiffs filed suit against Tyndall in a state court class action, and after claimant Lucy C. filed a putative federal class action. Lucy’s claim seeks to represent all women who suffered molestation or other forms of sexual assault at the hands of Dr. Tyndall.
“Tyndall violated [patient] trust by causing physical contact, including in the form of sexual abuse, molestation, and unwanted touching, in violation of his female patients that was not for the purpose of providing medical care, but for the purpose of providing Tyndall with sexual gratification,” the new class action states.
This USC Sexual Assault Lawsuit is Case No. 2:18-cv-4940, in the U.S. District Court for Central California.
