Complaints against Tyndall date back to the 1990s, when co-workers accused him of improperly photographing students’ genitals. The photos were discovered during a search of his office in 2016.

USC began termination proceedings against Tyndall last year, but he threatened to file a lawsuit for retaliation and discrimination. Rather than risk a lawsuit, USC paid him a settlement allowing him to resign.

Unfortunately for USC, the plan to avoid litigation backfired — lawsuits and class actions have been filed by at least 6 women who were victimized by Tyndall, and about 300 women have come forward.

The lawsuits go into graphic detail about Tyndall forcing women into fully nude exams that were not medically necessary, using his fingers to penetrate the vagina while making sexual comments, and more. One woman said he put his entire ungloved hand inside her vagina.

An investigation by USC acknowledged that Tyndall’s behavior was unacceptable and should not have been tolerated for so long.

USC administrators have now admitted that Tyndall “should have been forced out of his job years ago.”

The women accuse USC of failing to address complaints against Tyndall dating back to 2000, allowing him unfettered access to girls.

The USC investigation also determined that Tyndall’s behavior amounted to sexual harassment, and was outside the scope of current medical practice. Even so, USC did not tell his patients, and belatedly reported him to the Medical Board of California in March 2018.

The first class action lawsuit was filed by attorney John Manly, an alumnus of USC who accuses his university of a “cover up.”

Earlier this month, Manley announced a preliminary $500 million settlement against Michigan State University on behalf of young female gymnasts who were sexually abused by Dr. Larry Nassar.
