USC to pay largest higher education sexual abuse payout in history

The University of Southern California (USC) will pay more than $1 billion to more than 700 victims sexually abused by former gynecologist George Tyndall, in the largest payout in higher education history.

Tyndall, 74, worked as the only full-time gynecologist at the college’s student health center for 30 years and is facing 35 criminal counts of sexual misconduct between 2009 and 2016, the AP reported.

He was not suspended until 2016 after a nurse, who was chaperoning a patient, reported him to a rape crisis center. He then resigned with a large payout in 2017 after an internal inquiry found he had made inappropriate remarks to patients, according to BBC News.
