University of Southern California Agrees to $852 Million Settlement in Sexual Abuse Lawsuit
More than 700 women who claim University of Southern California campus gynecologist Dr. George Tyndall sexually abused them during exams will receive funds from a $852 million settlement from the university. Tyndall served as a gynecologist at the university’s student health clinic for nearly 30 years. The Los Angeles Times published an in depth report into sexual misconduct allegations against Tyndall and noted that complaints against the gynecologist began in the 1990s with very little action being taken to protect students. Many of the complaints involved inappropriate behavior including photographs taken of patients genital, inappropriate comments about patients bodies, and inappropriate touching during exams. Tyndall was eventually suspended in 2016 and was allowed to resign from his position with the university the following year without disciplinary action. In 2019, Tyndall surrendered his medical license.
