Update: 3 More Former USC Students Sue Over Gynecologist Sexual Harassment
May 31, 2018 – Three more women have come forward to claim they were sexually harassed by USC gynecologist Dr. George Tyndall, filing lawsuits against the university on Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court. The case is in RE: Jane Doe 11, et al. v. Dr. George Tyndall, et al. — Case No. BC707880.
What’s the problem?
May 25, 2018 – So far this week, at least 6 women have filed suit against USC alleging that they were assaulted under the care of Tyndall during his nearly three decades at the university, and that school officials knew of his behavior and failed to take action.
The suits were filed on the heels of an investigation published by the LA Times, which delved into Tyndall’s alleged pattern of “creepy” behavior, complaints about which date back to the nineties. Tyndall has denied that he did anything wrong, stating that his exams were thorough but appropriate.

USC representatives have admitted that complaints about Tyndall were filed as far back as 2000; however, he wasn’t put on leave until 16 years later, after a nurse in 2016 reported him to the campus rape crisis center. After an investigation, he was fired last June.
“It’s really unclear why USC and its clinic leadership didn’t take action sooner,” said Matt Hamilton, an LA Times reporter who helped break the story. “The faculty at USC…they are in a state of revolt right now.”
