Sauder Schelkopf currently represents survivors of sexual misconduct by Dr. Reginald Archibald, an endocrinologist formerly of Rockefeller University Hospital located in New York. The hospital posted a statement online saying it had evidence of the doctor’s “inappropriate” behavior with some patients and that it first learned of credible allegations against him in 2004. It has been reported that the letter was sent to as many as 1,000 people. New York recently passed a law extending the statute of limitations for survivors of childhood sexual misconduct from age 23 to age 55 for future cases. Significantly, the law also provides survivors outside the statute of limitations one year to file a civil suit.
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.
