California University To Pay Up More Than $1 Billion To Victims Of Its Besmirched Gynecologist
California higher education institution University of Southern California (USC) has agreed to a series of settlement agreements and would pay up more than $1 billion to former patient-victim of a disgraced campus gynecologist accused of sexual abuse.
The university is poised to pay up more than a billion dollars to victims of former campus gynecologist Dr. George Tyndall as a result of three separate settlements pursued by different parties to the case, mostly involving past patients of the doctor.
This is seen as a complete turnaround of how the university handled the whole University of Southern California Gynecologist Sexual Abuse issue.
It was alleged that the university administrators have known the reports being made against Dr. Tyndall by its former patients during his almost three-decade stay in USC.
Reports by his former patients, the doctor has asked them to answer sexually suggestive questions that were not related to their treatment.
Dr. Tyndall would also reportedly comment on the victims’ bodies whenever he is treating them.
There were also instances that the gynecologist would conduct pelvic exams on his patients without any gloves on and many other sexually inappropriate acts.
The earliest complaints made against the university gynecologist date back to 1991, and the administrators reportedly turned a blind eye on them.
It was only in 2016 when everything went to a turning point when a nursing supervisor came forward accusing Dr. Tyndall of inappropriately touching female students seeking his care.
Soon after, he was subjected to an administrative leave while a university-backed investigation was going on.
It was reported that the university officials went ahead with an agreement with the disgraced gynecologist – resulting in the university paying him up to leave his university post and a clean record with the state of California medical board association.
The victims of the disgraced USC doctor are set to receive the justice they have been longing for after the whole ordeal and abuse they have suffered from the hands of Dr. Tyndall.
As of writing, he is awaiting trial on different charges of sexual assault and abuse.
This is an ongoing story, and we are committed to bringing you the latest developments as soon as the information is made available to the general members of the public.
