USC Gynecologist Accused of Sexual Assault Raided by LAPD

Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) on Thursday raided a home and storage facility owned by Dr. George Tyndall, the former USC campus gynecologist who has been accused by dozens of women of inappropriate sexual behavior.

The LAPD has been in contact with approximately 135 women concerning Dr. Tyndall, who worked as USC’s only full-time campus gynecologist for nearly 3 decades. More than 400 people have called a university hotline since news of an investigation published in the LA Times detailed how Tyndall was allowed to remain at his post for most of his tenure, despite having numerous complaints filed against him.

What’s the problem?

June 15, 2018 – The controversy surrounding Tyndall has embroiled USC staff and led to the ousting of university president C.L. Max Nikias, according to the LA Times.

USC leaders have acknowledged that the reporting system for these types of complaints is in need of streamlining, but denied having any knowledge about those concerning Tyndall prior to last year, according to a letter from Provost Michael Quick.

Tyndall was allowed to resign quietly with a financial payout last summer, and the university did not report him to the Medical Board of California, which investigates misconduct by physicians, until last March. The university has acknowledged that “in hindsight” Tyndall should have been reported much sooner.

The police raid comes as more women continue to allege sexual misconduct by George Tyndall, including dozens who have filed class action lawsuits.

Tyndall has denied any wrongdoing and said he never mistreated his patients. He has not responded publicly to the latest developments.
