Thirty More Women Sue USC Over Former Gynecologist
08/15/2018 6:20pm

A lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court Wednesday accuses former University of Southern California campus gynecologist George Tyndall of sexually assaulting 30 women, bringing the growing number of civil cases filed by former patients to more than 300.The new complaint, obtained first by the NBC4 I-Team, alleges the women, listed as "Jane Does" in court papers, were sexually abused by Tyndall under the guise of legitimate medical exams at the campus Student Health Center, sometimes while being observed by a USC-employed nurse. Feds Probe USC Over Handling of Sex Harassment Allegations "I think that the sheer volume speaks to how many women were failed by USC and its administration," attorney John Manly told NBC4.He filed this most recent case and said his firm represents more than 100 plaintiffs. LAPD Raids Home of Former USC Doctor Accused of Sex Abuse USC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Board of Trustees chairman Rick Caruso said in a letter to the campus in May that "profound" actions were needed in light of the allegations. 3 Ex-USC Students Allege Tyndall Abused Them "Our thoughts are with the families that have been affected by this situation, and our pledge to this community is that we will rebuild our culture to reflect an environment in which safety and transparency are of paramount importance, and to institute systemic change that will prevent this from occurring in the future," the letter said.On Aug. 6, attorney Gloria Allred announced she'd filed a similar lawsuit on behalf of 12 women who said they were abused by Tyndall during exams. Numerous alleged victims claim the university received complaints of Tyndall's alleged sexually abusive behavior dating back to at least 1988, and deliberately concealed Tyndall's actions.In June LAPD detectives assigned to the Robbery-Homicide Division served a search warrant at Tyndall's condo on Wilshire Boulevard in the Westlake District near downtown.Tyndall was not arrested.Manly said many of his clients have been frustrated by the pace of the criminal investigation."Almost every one of our clients has had contact with the LAPD," Manly said. "Only six or seven have been interviewed by the LA County District Attorney's Office, and honestly, for our survivors, that's frustrating. They understand it's a slow process, but many of them fear without an arrest, he's going to flee."Prosecutors have begun to consider criminal charges in 28 cases presented by detectives in the last month, the DA's office told NBC4."We are working closely with law enforcement to further investigate where necessary," a statement said.Attorneys for some victims have argued that following an internal investigation of complaints against Tyndall in 2016 the university paid Tyndall a substantial financial settlement so he would quietly resign.USC officials have denied any cover up, and Tyndall has denied any wrongdoing.In an open letter to faculty and staff in May, USC Provost Michael Quick said top administrators did not know about the complaints until 2016."It is true that our system failed, but it is important that you know that this claim of a cover-up is patently false," Quick wrote. "We would never knowingly put students in harm's way."USC established a hotline for complaints about Tyndall and has offered free counseling to his former patients.Photo Credit: Robyn Beck/AFP/Getty Images

The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin Dies at 76
08/16/2018 9:06am

Aretha Franklin, the long-reigning “Queen of Soul” who sang with matchless style on such classics as “Think” and her signature song, “Respect,” died Thursday at age 76, said her representative, Gwendolyn Quinn.The cause was advanced pancreatic cancer. Cardi B to Open 2018 MTV VMAs 1 Month After Giving Birth Born March 25, 1942, in Memphis, Tennessee, Franklin was an 18-time Grammy Award winner and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country's highest civilian honor. She was renowned for her powerful, distinctive gospel-honed vocal style that influenced singers across generations.Rolling Stone gave her the top spot on its "Greatest Singers of All Time" list, and in 1987 Franklin became the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Paul Walker's Brothers Open to 'Fast and Furious' Franchise Return Franklin's countless classics include: "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman," "Chain Of Fools," "I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You)"; her own compositions: Think," "Daydreaming" and "Call Me"; her definitive versions of "Respect" and "I Say A Little Prayer"; and global hits like "Freeway Of Love," "Jump To It," "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)," her worldwide chart-topping duet with George Michael, and “A Rose Is Still A Rose."Largely self-taught, Franklin was regarded as a child prodigy. A gifted pianist with a booming voice, Franklin got her start singing in front of her father's congregation.  Shelter Dog-Turned-Model Is 'Living His Best Life Ever' In 2008 she received her 18th Grammy Award for "Never Gonna Break My Faith" — a collaboration with Mary J.

Disney Cancels Planned Hotel Construction in Anaheim
08/16/2018 5:36am

The hotel whose construction was to have begun at Anaheim's Downtown Disney last month has been put on hold indefinitely after Disney and the city of Anaheim could not agree over the terms of the development, according to officials on both sides of the issue, it was reported Wednesday.The new upscale hotel had been slated to have 700 rooms spread over the west end of the outdoor mall, including the site of the former Rainforest Cafe, ESPN Zone sports bar and restaurant, the AMC Theatres and the Earl of Sandwich eatery, the Orange County Register reported. Those businesses and others were closed in June to make way for the new construction, which had been expected to start July 1. Photos: 19 of the Most Valuable Cars at Sotheby's Monterey Auction The hotel was scheduled to open in 2021, making it the fourth Disney-owned hotel at the Disneyland Resort. However, Disney executives pulled the project Wednesday, saying they could not reach an agreement with the city over terms under which the hotel was to be constructed, according to the Register.The move was in response to an Aug. 6 letter in which Anaheim City Attorney Robert Fabela wrote to Disney saying that a change in the site plan would make the hotel ineligible for expected tax incentive rebates. Photos: Firefighters Defend Homes From the Holy Fire "Given the city's position that our project does not comply with the requirements of the Agreement, you have given us no other choice other than to put construction of the hotel on indefinite hold,'' David Ontko, chief counsel for Disneyland Resort and International Parks & Resorts, wrote to the city attorney Wednesday.City spokesman Mike Lyster said late Wednesday that officials "are disappointed the hotel isn't moving forward,'' the Register reported. Heat Tips: Public Pools, Staying Cool Todd Ament, president of the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce, said in a statement quoted by the Los Angeles Times that "Disneyland's decision to halt development of their fourth hotel is a devastating blow to Anaheim and a direct result of the city's increasingly hostile actions towards our local economy.''But Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait, who has opposed the subsidy for the hotel project, said Disneyland Resort has the option to build the project without a subsidy from the city.The hotel was originally proposed for the site of a parking lot on the north end of Disney's property, at 1401 Disneyland Way, The Times reported.But since the hotel project was announced and the 20-year tax break was approved, Disneyland Resort has changed the hotel location to a larger site within Downtown Disney, a shopping district adjacent to the resort's Disneyland and California Adventure theme parks. The new address, about 1,000 feet south, would be 1601 Disneyland Way.The ordinance approved by the Anaheim City Council in July 2016 gave the proposed hotel a 70 percent break on the city' transient occupancy tax but specified that the subsidy go to a luxury hotel built at 1401 Disneyland Way, near the north end of the resort -- not for a luxury hotel in the shopping district.Photo Credit: Heather Navarro

Sebastian Ridley-Thomas Subject to Sexual Harassment Complaints
08/16/2018 4:51am

Former Assemblyman Sebastian Ridley-Thomas was the subject of two sexual harassment complaints at the time he stepped down from the Legislature last year, according to documents reviewed by the Los Angeles Times and sources familiar with the matter.Ridley-Thomas, who denied any wrongdoing, went on a few months later to become a professor of social work and public policy at USC. When the junior legislator, the son of Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, abruptly resigned from the Assembly in December, he cited chronic health problems that had necessitated five surgeries in the previous year. Assemblyman Sebastian Ridley-Thomas Announces Resignation A university source who spoke on the condition of anonymity said USC had found no evidence that Sebastian Ridley-Thomas informed administrators he was under investigation, The Times reported. A background check conducted before his hiring did not identify any red flags, the source said.USC fired Ridley-Thomas last month amid questions about his appointment and a $100,000 donation to the school from his father' campaign funds. Photos: 19 of the Most Valuable Cars at Sotheby's Monterey Auction In a statement to The Times this week, Sebastian Ridley- Thomas' attorney reiterated that his client stepped down from the Assembly solely because of "health reasons.''"He underwent a number of surgeries and his doctor made it clear that serving in the Assembly was no longer an option,'' Lance Olson said in a statement. Photos: Firefighters Defend Homes From the Holy Fire As for the misconduct claims, Olson said: "He categorically denies any accusation, innuendo or conjecture that he conducted himself inappropriately while serving in the Legislature. If anything, he was reserved and always respectful of those around him, be they staff persons, colleagues or the public.''Sources close to Ridley-Thomas also told The Times he was suffering from health problems at the time of his resignation. Stephen J. Kaufman, an attorney for Mark Ridley-Thomas, said the supervisor remained "convinced his son's decision was a wise one because of the marked improvement in his health.''According to documents and people familiar with the matter, the two reports of misconduct are under investigation by the Assembly Rules Committee, which is responsible for examining harassment complaints. The complaints are not subject to public review until and unless they are substantiated.First elected in a 2013 special election at age 26, Sebastian Ridley-Thomas was one of the youngest legislators in the Assembly. He held a significant chairmanship -- the Assembly Committee on Revenue and Taxation. He was also known for his close association with his father. A former state legislator and city councilman, Mark Ridley-Thomas is one of the most influential politicians in Los Angeles, and his connections and donor base repeatedly helped his son at the ballot box. Photo Credit: Office of Sebastian Ridley-Thomas
