51 New Sexual Assault Lawsuits Filed Against USC Gynecologist; Board Chairman Calls for Settlement

At least 51 more women have filed suit against the University of Southern California (USC) over alleged sexual misconduct by former campus gynecologist George Tyndall, bringing the total number of claims filed to more than 225.

July 24, 2018 – USC concealed years of sexual abuse complaints against Tyndall, whose alleged victims include university alumni from multiple decades, according to the lawsuits.

What’s the problem?

July 24, 2018 – As the litigation piles up against Tyndall and USC, the chair of the university’s board of trustees said he wants to see the litigation resolved “as quickly as possible,” according to the LA Times.

Rick Caruso, civic leader and elected USC board of trustees chairman, said he hoped a settlement could be reached without depositions and trials that would require plaintiffs to publicly recount their experiences with Dr. George Tyndall.

“We are going to be fair, we are going to be dignified and we are going to have a process that does not put them through hardship in coming to a resolution,” Caruso said.

Considering the large number of lawsuits filed against USC filed over Tyndall’s alleged indiscretions — as well as the likelihood of many more cases in the future — the cost to the university and its insurers could be astronomical. More than 225 students and alumnae are now suing USC for failing to protect them from Tyndall, including 51 women who filed suit in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday morning.

Tyndall served as USC’s campus gynecologist until June 2016, when a supervising nurse became frustrated by clinic administrators for not taking her complaints seriously and reported him to the campus rape crisis center. He was placed on paid leave for nearly a year, and banned from the clinic pending an investigation. Tyndall has still not been charged with any crimes.
