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.”
May 23, 2018 – USC is battling lawsuits and public outrage over an alleged pattern of sexual abuse by Tyndall, who was reportedly allowed to continue working despite multiple complaints to university officials, according to NPR.
In response to the outcry over Tyndall’s alleged sexual abuse, about 200 faculty members have called for campus president, C.L. Max Nikias, to resign. In a letter to the board of trustees released Tuesday, the faculty claims that Nikias “has lost the moral authority to lead the University.”
To date, at least 6 women have filed lawsuits against Tyndall and USC, alleging they were abused by the gynecologist during his nearly 30 years on the job, and that the university knew about his behavior and was negligent for failing to take action.
The lawsuits were filed on Monday, less than a week after the LA Times published an investigation into Tyndall’s alleged “creepy” behavior, which documents complaints going back to the 1990s.
Tyndall has denied any wrongdoing, stating that his exams were “thorough” and “appropriate,” and that he “never had any sexual urges” toward his patients.
