What’s the problem?
May 25, 2018 – On Monday, at least 6 women filed lawsuits against USC alleging that they were abused by Dr. Tyndall during his nearly 30-year stint as campus gynecologist at USC, and that school officials failed to take action in the face of numerous allegations.
The complaints came less than a week after the LA Times published an investigation into the allegations against Tyndall, which go back to the 90s. Tyndall has denied that he did anything wrong, telling the Times that his exams were thorough but appropriate.
