A $215 million class action settlement agreement between the University of Southern California and several law firms representing dozens of women who allege they were sexually abused by Dr. George Tyndall was filed in federal court Tuesday. The money will be used to compensate women saying they were victimized by Tyndall, a gynecologist in the institution’s student health center for almost three decades.

Beyond compensation, the settlement, which still needs court approval, will also require USC to implement a number of reforms, including background checks for anyone who will interact with patients in the USC Student Health Center and personnel adjustments so female students have the option to see a female doctor, according to the filing.
