- USC Offers $215 Million Over Sexual Abuse Claims
October 22, 2018
Last Friday, the University of Southern California (USC) agreed to pay $215 million in damages after dozens of patients filed lawsuits accusing longtime campus gynecologist Dr. George Tyndall of sexual abuse. Thesettlement would provide at least $2,500 to any student treated by Tyndall over the course of his 30-year employment at the university student health center.
As many as 17,000 students and alumnae qualify for this federal suit. Those willing to come forward about the sexual abuse they experienced may also be entitled to additional compensation up to $250,000.
Tyndall has adamantinely denied any wrongdoing and claims that his medical examinations were always within the medical standards of care.
In 2017, Tyndall was fired for misconduct after reaching a settlement deal. This was followed by an internal investigation into allegations of sexual harassment. He is currently being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department, but no criminal charges against the doctor have been filed at this time.
Other University Sexual Abuse Cases
This is one of the latest settlements involving accusations of sexual misconduct perpetrated by employees of a college or university.Michigan State University agreed to a $500 million settlement after 300 victims were sexually assaulted by sports doctor Larry Nassar in May of this year. More than $100 million was paid out by Penn State to victims sexually abused by assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
I would like to thank Vanessa Rodriguez for helping me with my case because I was in total shock about the accident. She had listened to all my concerns and had answered every question I had . She was great !!!
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!

Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
