Another Major University Settles Sex Abuse Cases


The University of Southern California had it’s own Larry Nassar-type scandal… and now terms of a giant settlement have been announced. Attorneys for women who said they were sexually abused by a gynecologist at the University of Southern California say a $215 million settlement includes payouts and campus reforms.

Attorneys say a proposed lawsuit settlement will require the university to put procedures in place for identifying, preventing and reporting sexual abuse.

Hundreds of students and former students accused Dr. George Tyndall of committing sexual misconduct during physical exams over a number of years.
The settlement will offer between $2,500 and $250,000 each to women who say they were abused between 1989 and 2016.

A settlement was announced in October. It’s up to a judge to approve it. Tyndall has denied wrongdoing.
