Women who claim to have been sexually assaulted by George Tyndall the disgraced former USC gynecologist, say that he targeted foreign students and university officials allegedly hid their knowledge of Tyndall’s wrongdoings because it went against USC’s “sales pitch” to attract more students, according to bombshell court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com.
Dozens of women have filed civil complaints against Tyndall and the University of Southern California, but in a lawsuit filed on July 9, three women allege Tyndall targeted foreign students, particularly Chinese students, who were unaware of the American standards of gynecological exams, according to the affidavit.
“Plaintiffs are informed that Tyndall sought out foreign USC students, specifically Chinese USC students, to use his position of authority and power, and trust that comes with a position of authority and power, to sexually abuse and molest Plaintiffs and other foreign students because they are unaware of the typical standards and techniques used by American gynecologists,” the women’s attorneys said in the July 9 document obtained by Radar.
"Moreover, USC held themselves out to potential Chinese students and have sales-like pitches to potential Chinese students by status that USC facilitated an atmosphere of safety, which included their STUDENT HEALTH CENTER and the individuals employed within the STUDENT HEALTH CENTER, such as Tyndall. … USC Defendants hid their knowledge of TYNDALL’s behavior because it directly conflicted with the sales-pitch USC would use to attract foreign student,” the court docs stated.
The three women, who are identified individually on the suit as Jane Doe, are seeking compensation for sexual assault and battery, false imprisonment, emotional distress, fraud, negligence and concealment.
The women also allege USC charged Chinese students extra money to receive health insurance so that they could be treated at the Student Health Center on campus, where Tyndall worked full-time.
USC officials in 2017 paid Tyndall a financial settlement and the doctor quietly resigned. Since news broke of Tyndall’s alleged sexual misconduct dating back to the 1990s, dozens of women have continued to come out publicly that they were molested by Tyndall under the guise of receiving medical exams. The former doctor also allegedly groped women and took pictures of victims’ genitalia with no medical purpose.
The alleged victims also point the blame to university officials and other employees at the campus Student Health Center, some who were in the room when the alleged sexual abuse occurred, according to court documents.
