New suits filed against former doctors, USC

first_imgKelly was employed at the University for nearly 20 years before resigning in August 2018 to work as a men’s health specialist at Cal State Northridge. At the press conference Monday, Andy Rubenstein, one of the lawyers named in the two lawsuits, said  that he also represents two students and victims of Kelly’s who did not attend USC. Ten of the men and women present Monday spoke about their experiences with Tyndall and Kelly. At least 30 men — all of whom identify as gay or bisexual — are also suing the University and Kelly over similar complaints, as well as alleged violation of the Unruh Civil Rights Act, which outlaws discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation at all California businesses. Eleven of those men were named in Monday’s lawsuit. Seth Johnson attended USC from 2017 to 2018. He said Kelly forced him to undergo unnecessary and invasive examinations, along with answer inappropriate questions. Davis also advocated for AB 1510, a bill that would allow lawyers a one-year period to revive cases — specifically those involving university health centers — that were previously ineligible due to the state statute of limitations. USC has hired a lobbying firm to advocate against the bill, which would allow more victims of Tyndall and Kelly to seek claims. About 15 victims of former campus gynecologist George Tyndall and former campus men’s sexual health doctor Dennis Kelly’s alleged sexual abuse spoke about their experiences with the doctors at a press conference Monday held by D. Miller and Associates, one of the firms that filed the lawsuits. Amanda Davis, a victim of Tyndall’s abuse who spoke at the conference, said she thinks USC wants victims to accept the class action settlement so it can squander the scandal quickly without having to change its policies. Rubenstein said at the press conference that he expects the University to offer a similar settlement to Kelly’s victims as in the Tyndall case. The University has not released an official statement about the lawsuits since the first was filed against Kelly in February. Attorney Andy Rubenstein led a press conference Monday after filing two new lawsuits against USC and two former campus doctors. (Sasha Urban/Daily Trojan) “The university is aware of the lawsuit,” the statement read. “We will seek a prompt and fair resolution that is respectful of our former students.” In a statement to the Daily Trojan, USC said it is aware of the most recent lawsuit against Tyndall. She said the University needs to make change by creating a reporting system hosted by an unbiased party to track complaints and lead investigations into claims. Davis also said Tyndall and Kelly need to face legal repercussions for their actions. Over 650 women are currently involved in lawsuits against the University and Tyndall. In February, USC agreed to a class action settlement that would distribute $215 million to nearly 17,000 of Tyndall’s former patients, but the United States District Court of California delayed a preliminary approval of the settlement, citing unclear distribution procedures. Thirty-three women were named in Monday’s lawsuit against Tyndall and USC. “USC needs to be held accountable,” she said. “They need to provide answers for who knew what, when, where. They need to give a voice and closure to victims as they have promised.” Two new lawsuits were filed against USC Monday, adding to a growing stack of litigation against two former campus doctors and the University for sexual abuse, negligence and gender violence, among other charges. “It saddens me that USC allowed this abuse to continue for years without any change, but I want to turn my sorrow into action,” Johnson said. “I want to encourage and inspire people to speak up and not be afraid to defend themselves from these predatory situations. It’s time for USC and Dr. Kelly to be held accountable.” “You go to a doctor … you’re placing your trust in this person,” Rubenstein said. “Everyone [feels] passionate about their school. This is like an intervention for some family member we love but who has gone off the rails.”last_img read more

NBA playoffs 2019: Kyrie Irving discusses Celtics’ low-scoring Game 1 win over Pacers

first_img“They have incredible defenders on their team,” Irving said. “They use their length very well. They control the paint. We just have to do the right things. Getting all those jitters out for the first game, I’m always happy just to get the feel-out game out of the way. Now you can really see where you can improve.”The Celtics trailed by seven at halftime but held Indiana to just eight third-quarter points as they took control. Related News “I think that experience, firsthand, is always the best teacher,” Irving said. “You come out, you don’t shoot particularly well. Throughout the regular season, we’ve been in positions like that. … We just had to turn that page. It’s the next play mentality. We weren’t shooting well. … But, it’s a series.“We come out, any time in the game, runs can happen, anyone can come in and make an impact. And it just doesn’t have to be on the offensive end.”Irving scored 20 points on 6-of-17 shooting in the win. He also added a game-high seven assists along with five rebounds.“I’ve been in a few playoff games like that, I’ve been on both ends,” Irving said. “That’s where the really gritty individuals make their mark. Just the focus level on the game plan really comes to the ultimate level and we depend on each other that much more.

NBA Draft 2019: Mamadi Diakite becomes fourth Virginia player to declare early

first_img Zion Williamson assists couple with epic gender reveal dunk I would like to thank God and my wonderful family for the opportunity to play this game at such a prestigious university. Just a boy from Conakry, Guinea!!! This has been an unbelievable experience and I can’t even begin to put it in to words. I have grown so much from my first day on Grounds both on and off the court which is why I am confident in announcing my intentions to declare for the NBA Draft. This process will allow me to test the waters, get valuable feedback and participate in the pre-draft process. Regardless, I know that UVA will always hold a special place in my heart. @justinmaxey1A post shared by Mamadi Diakite (@_mdiakite) on Apr 17, 2019 at 2:09pm PDTThe 6-foot-9 forward served as a reserve for much of the season, but was promoted to the starting lineup during the NCAA Tournament when the Cavaliers faced Oklahoma in the Round of 32.
