What’s the Problem?
The bill was created in response to more than 400 allegations of sexual misconduct against Dr. Tyndall by former patients at USC, according to KTLA 5. Despite the large number of complaints, Tyndall is currently only charged with molesting 16 women, as California’s current statute of limitations bars most claims.
The current statute for damages resulting from a sexual assault on an adult victim is 10 years from the date of the last actionable conduct, or 3 years from the discovery of the resulting injury, whichever is later. The new law extends the time-frame for lawsuits alleging improper sexual contact or communications by a physician at a student health center between Jan. 1, 1988, and Jan. 1, 2017.
