Ninety-three more women have come forward to accuse former University of Southern California gynecologist George Tyndall of sexual assault in two new lawsuits, months after allegations against the doctor first surfaced.
About 500 current and former students have now made accusations of sexual misconduct, harassment and abuse against Tyndall dating back to 1988, according to the Associated Press.
About 20 women announced the filings of new lawsuits against the doctor and university on behalf of 93 women at a news conference on Thursday.
Of the hundreds of accusations against Tyndall, women claim the doctor molested and abused them, made crude comments, took inappropriate photos, and forced patients to strip naked in order to grope them.
Tyndall has denied allegations, and a statement from his lawyer claimed the examinations “were for the stated medical purpose,”CNN reported earlier this year.
The Los Angeles Police Department and Los Angeles County district attorney’s office are reviewing allegations against Tyndall.
Attorney John Manley, who is representing some of Tyndall’s accusers, called on California’s state attorney general’s office to investigation USC’s handling of claims against Tyndall.
“They haven’s said a word. Not one,” he said. “All these women: 500. You’re on the board. Say something.”
USC said in a statement to the Associated Press that it is aware of lawsuits against the school is is working to seek “a prompt and fair resolution that is respectful of our former students.”
Tyndall was fired last year after working as a staff gynecologist for USC for about 30 years, according to WNEM.
His retirement came after a USC investigation found evidence that Tyndall had sexually harassed students during examinations.
University officials said they had reached a settlement and did not report Tyndall to authorities at the time.
Tyndall has not been charged with a crime and USC has denied accusations that the university covered up the alleged abuse.
