USC Settles for Over $1 Billion with 700+ Women Who Accused University Doctor of Sexual Assault 

HeadlineMar 26, 2021

The University of Southern California has agreed to pay over $1 billion in settlements to more than 700 women who accused former student health center gynecologist George Tyndall of sexually assaulting them. Last February, a federal investigation concluded the university had mishandled dozens of sexual assault reports against Tyndall, allowing the abuse to continue for years. Survivors have said Tyndall raped or forcibly touched them, and made racist and misogynistic comments while he sexually abused them. Tyndall was arrested in 2019. His trial is pending.
