GJELL Will Represent Victims in USC Sexual Abuse Scandal

Trusted attorney Kristin Lucey is leading the GJELL team

The sexual abuse attorneys at Gillin, Jacobson, Ellis, Larsen & Lucey are aggressively pursuing claims against George Tyndall, a former University of Southern California on-campus gynecologist accused of a widespread pattern of sexual abuse. GJELL is committed not only to justice and dignity but also to monetary compensation that victims deserve.

Thus far, over 340 women have stepped forward to accuse Tyndall of abuse that occurred during his decades-long tenure at the Engemann Student Health Center. The abuse scandal has led to the recent suspension of Tyndall’s California medical license, the departure of USC President C.L. Max Nikias, passage of state legislation that would make California the first U.S. state requiring doctor disclosures about licensing probation and other forms of state discipline, and a restructuring of leadership and procedures at the Engemann Center aimed at regaining student trust. Tyndall has reportedly denied wrongdoing.

The sexual abuse allegations at USC suggest a betrayal of the women who entrusted USC and its only full-time gynecologist with their health. Abusers must be held accountable.

“The sexual abuse allegations at USC suggest a betrayal of the women who entrusted USC and its only full-time gynecologist with their health. Abusers must be held accountable to prevent any further betrayal of the public trust,” said GJELL partner Andy Gillin.

California law allows you to file a legal claim against a person who commits a wrongful act like sexual abuse that causes harm, and against any individual or entity that failed to act, detect, report, or prevent the abuse, while under an obligation to do so. Lucey and GJELL have recovered millions of dollars for women who have been victims of improper sexual behavior.
