More ex-students accuse former USC gynecologist of sexual assault

93 women accuse former USC doctor of sex abuse

The University of Southern California will pay $215 million in an "agreement in principle" to patients treated by Dr. George Tyndall, a campus gynecologist who has been accused of sexual assault by hundreds of women.

The university said students who alleged abuse would receive compensation ranging from $2,500 to $250,000. In 2016, the school began investigating him over allegations of improper pelvic exams and making racist and sexually inappropriate remarks.

Although the proposed settlement covers only a federal class-action case, the Los Angeles Times reported that plaintiffs in state court cases will be able to opt in.

A group of current and former USC students who are survivors of alleged sexual assault by gynecologist Dr. George Tyndall from the USC student health center and which occured over a 30 years period, speak out during a press conference in Los Angeles, on Thursday.

The USC has established a hotline for complaints about Tyndall's sexual harassment and misconduct and said it would take measures for significant and sustainable change.

Tyndall has thousands of former patients; officials estimate the class could be as many as 14,000 to 17,000 women, according to Tara Lee, an attorney representing the school.

"I regret that any student ever felt uncomfortable, unsafe or mistreated in any way as a result of the actions of a university employee", Austin said.

Even though the investigation found fault with his examinations, Tyndall was allowed to retire under an amicable agreement with USC, the financial details of which have not been disclosed.

Tyndall's attorney, N. Denise Taylor, said her client denies all allegations but agreed to the settlement to avoid the expense of continued litigation.

She was among some 20 women who appeared at a news conference Thursday to announce the filing of new lawsuits on behalf of 93 women against the university.

In an interview Friday afternoon she said some of the changes include a new office of professionalism and ethics so that people with concerns about anything at the university can contact one person, rather than trying to figure out the appropriate channels.

The university knew of Tyndall's behavior since at least the 1990s, according to the complaint.

The university has faced criticism of its handling of the matter after a Los Angeles Times report this year said that complaints about Tyndall's care went unheeded by the school for decades.

A fair and respectful resolution for as many former patients as possible has been a priority for the university and for me personally since I began serving in the role of Interim President. Los Angeles police and Los Angeles County prosecutors are reviewing the claims.

The proposed settlement was "reached with plaintiffs' counsel", Austin said. We care deeply about our community, we are listening carefully, learning from these experiences and strengthening our university.

"We are continuing to vigorously litigate our state cases for numerous victims and we will insist that each of our clients be properly compensated for what they were forced to endure", she said in an email on Friday.

Frederick J. Ryan Jr., publisher and chief executive of The Washington Post, is a member of the USC board.
