USC Gynecologist Sexual Abuse Class Action Lawsuit

In May 2018, a class action lawsuit was filed against Dr. George Tyndall and the University of Southern California (USC) by a group of women who say they were sexually assaulted.

Here are some of the allegations against Dr. Tyndall in the lawsuits:

  • Using ungloved fingers to penetrate the vagina
  • Inserting his entire ungloved hand up to his wrist into a woman’s vagina
  • Moving his fingers in and out of the vagina while making sexual comments about “tightness”
  • Using ungloved hands to grope breasts
  • Asking inappropriate questions, such as whether a woman had ever swallowed semen before
  • Forcing women to get entirely naked and lie on the exam table to be slowly inspected head-to-toe for “moles”
  • Taking photographs of patients’ genitals
  • Making racist remarks
  • And more

Lawsuit Describes 30+ Years of Sexual Abuse

The lawsuit describes complaints of Dr. Tyndall inappropriately photographing patients’ genitals in the 1990s. The photographs were found in a box under his desk during a search of his office in 2017.

Why Wasn’t He Fired Earlier?

USC administrators are accused of ignoring the misconduct and allowing Dr. Tyndall unfettered access to young girls. After he was suspended in 2016, USC admitted that he should have been removed from the clinic years ago “because of the severity of the complaints.”

The lawsuit mentions that a group of 8 chaperones reported Dr. Tyndall to their supervisor in 2013. However, he continued working until a nurse reported him to the campus rape crisis center in 2016.

Over 300+ Women Reported Sexual Abuse

After the class action lawsuit was filed, USC admitted that over 300 women have come forward to complain about Dr. Tyndall’s behavior.

Unfortunately, many women did not realize they were being sexually assaulted by Dr. Tyndall during the exams because he was a doctor who claimed that he was performing medically necessary treatment.

In fact, USC investigators determined that he sexually harassed patients, and his “exams” were not accepted medical practice. Our lawyers are concerned that thousands of women were victimized.

USC Faculty Members Demand Justice

A group of over 200 faculty members at USC demanded the resignation of president C.L. Max Nikias after reports that Tyndall was allowed to resign with a financial settlement when Tyndall threatened to sue the school for discrimination and retaliation. The plan to avoid a lawsuit from Tyndall backfired after USC was hit with numerous lawsuits from women who were sexually assaulted by Tyndall during vaginal exams.

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm. Our lawyers are now filing individual lawsuits against Dr. Tyndall for sexual abuse, assaults, and USC for failing to address these serious complaints.

About Class Actions

Class actions can be useful when a lot of people have similar claims. Everyone joins together and collectively seeks compensation through a jury verdict or a settlement. However, class actions can also have disadvantages when one person has far more serious injuries.
