Have you, a family member or friend been subjected to
Hundreds of women have filed civil lawsuits against The University of Southern California (“USC”) based on the alleged sexual misconduct of Dr. George Tyndall, USC’s longtime campus gynecologist. Despite numerous complaints made to the school, Dr. Tyndall remained employed as USC’s gynecologist until 2017 enjoying a nearly 30-year career and seeing thousands of patients.
In a recent turn of events, USC is attempting to resolve all claims with a self-serving, one size fits all settlement. USC’s attempt to resolve victims’ claims through a general settlement protects USC by restricting the recovery of individual victims and preventing thorough investigations into each claim to reveal the truth.
Victims must act fast to protect themselves and ensure that they are rightfully represented by counsel that will act in their best interest. Victims who fail to act will be stuck with the relief the USC deems appropriate for the harm they have suffered.
If you or a family member have been assaulted, abused or harassed by Dr. Tyndall, you are not alone and the attorneys at KBK are here to help.

SEXUAL ASSAULT, ABUSE, AND HARASSMENT BY USC’S DR. GEORGE TYNDALL.
Dana Lowery, who was a USC student and patient of Dr. Tyndall over 20 years ago, told CNN reporters that her and other women had a nickname for Dr. Tyndall, “The Butcher.”
Hundreds of patients of Dr. Tyndall have alleged he engaged in behavior with patients constituting sexual assault, abuse, or harassment , including:
- Photographing patients’ genitals
- Making inappropriate comments or remarks about patients’ bodies, sexual activities, ethnicity and religious beliefs
- Requiring patients to submit to nude “full body” exams
- Inappropriately “probing” patients with fingers during exams
- Inappropriately touching or fondling patients’ genitals or bodies during exams
- Other behaviors that fall outside the expected standard of care for gynecologists
Currently, the full extent of Dr. Tyndall’s alleged misconduct is unknown. Accordingly, women who were patients of Dr. Tyndall at any time may be a victim and may have a case.
Sexual Abuse: A Civil Cause of Action
While Sexual Assault, Abuse, and Harassment can lead to criminal prosecution, a civil lawsuit is the only way that sexual abuse victims can recover monetary damages for the emotional and psychological harm they’ve suffered.
A civil lawsuit can enact change, provide remedies and protects the private rights of victims. Although a lawsuit can’t undo the harm done, it allows victims to obtain compensation for damages which can pay for medical or therapy bills, lost wages, loss of enjoyment in life, and provide a sense of vindication that can help assist with recovery and healing.
If you, a family member or friend were subjected to sexual assault, abuse, or harassment by USC’s Dr. George Tyndall, we can help you achieve the maximum compensation for the harm done.
