What’s the problem?
Another young woman who filed suit against Tyndall claims that the doctor “violated” her while her female chaperone waited outside. He refuted these allegations, claiming that the student had “given him permission to proceed” — “as if the violation of protocol and standard of care was Chi’s fault,” according to court documents.
That woman is suing USC, its board of trustees, and Dr. Tyndall in a class action lawsuit filed Monday in the US District Court for the Central District of California. Five other women filed civil lawsuits in Los Angeles County Superior Court, according to CBS News.
Plaintiffs’ attorneys expect the litigation to balloon into the hundreds or even thousands, consisting mainly of female students who received a medical examination from Tyndall and were allegedly subjected to his “creepy behavior.”
Also this week, USC fired a pir of longtime student health clinic administrators in the wake of the Tyndall scandal.
Dr. William Leavitt, lead physician at the Engemann Student Health Clinic, confirmed on Friday that he was fired. Tammie Akiyoshi, the clinical director at the health clinic, was also fired.
Former colleagues alleged Tyndall targeted young women, especially those from China and other Asian countries, for exams that included inappropriate touching and lewd remarks about patients’ sex lives and bodies, the Times reported.
