Sauder Schelkopf is investigating potential litigation against the National Football League teams for alleged sexual misconduct and unequal treatment of its cheerleaders. Two former Washington Redskins cheerleaders have reported sexual harassment including feeling uncomfortable and unsafe on a calendar shoot in Costa Rica while interacting with team sponsors and managers. Across the N.F.L. several teams have made adjustments to their programs after the reports about the Washington Redskins and allegations of improprieties within other teams. Several lawsuits have been filed against teams claiming misconduct, unfair wages and unequal treatment.
Sauder Schelkopf has a nationally recognized sexual misconduct practice with significant experience fighting for victims. Our former prosecutors have extensive experience investigating and trying cases on behalf of victims of all ages. Sauder Schelkopf, and co-counsel, recently reached a $215 million settlement on behalf of female patients of Dr. George Tyndall, a gynecologist at the University of Southern California accused of sexual misconduct since the 1990s. We currently represent survivors of clergy sexual abuse in dioceses throughout the country. We have a class action lawsuit pending on behalf of males who were victims of sexual misconduct by Dr. Richard Strauss, the Ohio State team doctor, while they were students and student-athletes at Ohio State University.
