The University of Southern California will pay $215 million in an “agreement in principle” to patients treated by Dr. George Tyndall, a campus gynecologist who has been accused of sexual assault by hundreds of women.
The university said Friday it will pay $2,500 to all students who received health services from Tyndall. Students who are willing to “provide further details about their experience” will be compensated up to $250,000, according to a statement from Wanda Austin, Interim President of USC.
The announcement comes after 93 former students filed two class-action lawsuits Thursday against the school for failing to address complaints about the doctor. More than 500 current and former USC students have made accusations against Tyndall to the university and local law enforcement.
