USC Trojans This & That — 6/14

Matt Hamilton and Harriet Ryan (LAT)  —  A federal judge granted preliminary approval Thursday to the landmark $215-million class-action settlement that USC had agreed to pay to former patients of campus gynecologist Dr. George Tyndall.

Under the terms of the settlement, the approximately 17,000 women treated during the physician’s three-decade career would each be eligible to receive between $2,500 and $250,000. The amount would depend on the severity of the misconduct alleged and the women’s willingness to confidentially detail those experiences in written statements or interviews.

The preliminary sign-off by U.S. District Judge Stephen V. Wilson is not expected to conclude USC’s payouts to female students and alumnae. More than 720 women are pursuing separate claims against the university in state court, and their lawyers have criticized the class-action agreement as paltry.

Within the next month, former patients of Tyndall identified through USC records will receive formal notices about the settlement terms. Those already suing in state court have until November to decide whether to opt out of the settlement.

The ultimate payment for each patient will be determined by a panel of three people including a gynecologist and a forensic psychologist.

No payments will be distributed until Wilson, the judge, grants final approval to the settlement. In his order Thursday, Wilson scheduled a hearing for Jan. 6 for final approval.

Watched the video, the kid can’t play for USC. He keeps his head up and his footwork is way to fast.

None of that matters if he “knows USC”.

720 separate lawsuits?– This “party” is not yet over, and may take years….Break up the Raptors. How can Leonard leave a championship team, and one that plays so well as a team?…2 1/2 months to SC kicking off a new season, but who’s counting?

I think that is grounds for divorce. At least a good sit down discussion about what is really important in life. LOL

I almost wonder how they are going to configure the payout for this case. There has to be some sort of panel that will hear the testimony of each person and there is so much to weigh on what is fair. All jokes aside (which is really pushing me to the limit) The panel would have to have a professional who would be able to discern whether a certain action was a routine examination or molestation. I know photos were taken and I cannot find a reason medically for this, but examination sometimes takes touching sensitive areas. I guess gloved… Read more »
