Update: Tyndall’s House, Storage Unit Raided by LAPD
June 15, 2018 – Detectives from the LAPD on Thursday raided a home and storage facility owned by Dr. George Tyndall, according to the Los Angeles Times. Police have been in contact with about 135 women regarding Tyndall, and more than 400 others have called a university hotline since news of the investigation surfaced.
What’s the problem?
Following the exam, the woman filed a complaint in November 1988 with USC officials, stating that she felt “molested” and “mistreated” during her exams with Tyndall. She claims she got no response to her pleas, and that USC continued to employ him as the campus gynecologist for nearly 30 years.
Another woman named as a plaintiff in the new lawsuit claims that gynecologist Tyndall made her get naked during a so-called “skin exam” in 2013 to check for moles. She says the doctor penetrated her vagina with 2 ungloved fingers, while making sexually inappropriate comments about her anatomy.
The last plaintiff claims she was abused twice by Tyndall, during separate gynecological exams in 2013 and 2016, in which he forced her to get naked unnecessarily to look for “moles,” and made inappropriate references to her body.
According to the lawsuit, none of the alleged victims knew they were violated until news of Tyndall’s escapades became public, having all the while naively maintained the belief they were subjected to standard medical protocol.
The complaint also accuses USC of ignoring and even actively hiding evidence of these crimes for decades, while allowing Tyndall to remain at his post and harm additional victims.
Plaintiffs are seeking financial compensation for sexual abuse, molestation, harassment, discrimination, and civil rights violations.
The lawsuit is — In RE: Jane Doe 11, et al. v. Dr. George Tyndall, et al. — Case No. BC707880.
