USC agrees to pay $852 million in latest settlement involving gynecologist accused of abuseWhat issues with sexual assault?
https://www.washingtonpost.com/education/2021/03/25/usc-tyndall-sexual-assault-settlement/The University of Southern California has agreed to an $852 million settlement to resolve lawsuits from hundreds of women alleging that the university failed to respond adequately to complaints that a gynecologist sexually abused patients at its student health center, according to terms disclosed Thursday.
USC and attorneys for the plaintiffs made the terms public after a hearing in Los Angeles County Superior Court. The magnitude of the settlement — about one-seventh the size of the $5.9 billion endowment USC reported in 2020 — made it a landmark case for higher education.
Previously, the university had also agreed to pay more than $200 million in a 2018 federal class-action settlement involving women who were patients of former USC gynecologist George Tyndall. Counting Thursday’s developments, USC’s total bill for legal settlements now exceeds $1 billion.
