Sauder Schelkopf, and co-counsel, reached a $215 million settlement with the University of Southern California (USC). The settlement will provide relief for a class of about 18,000 women who were allegedly abused by gynecologist Dr. George Tyndall while being treated at the student health center. On February 19, 2020, Judge Steven V. Wilson of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California granted final approval to the $215 million settlement of the class action litigation filed on behalf of nearly 18,000 women against Dr. George Tyndall and the University of Southern California. The settlement will require USC to adopt and implement procedures for identification, prevention, and reporting of sexual and racial misconduct, as well as recognize the harm done to all of Tyndall’s patients through a fund that gives every survivor a choice in how to participate.
