California University agrees to $73 million settlement in sexual abuse case

The University of California school system has reached a proposed $73 million settlement with seven women who accused a former gynecologist, Dr James Heaps, of sexual abuse in a class-action lawsuit. Now, pending a federal judge’s approval of the deal, more than 6,600 patients of Dr James Heaps could receive part of the settlement, even if they have not accused Dr Heaps.

I've heard it's easy to get pigeon-holed into specializations when you're a M.D. .... but male gynecologists always raised a red flag to me. Not all of them want to see taboo vag, but if you want to, and you can achieve M.D. status ... The Boy Scouts were seen as positive once, too. And we have Harvey, and camp counselor jokes. Come on. Truth is dark sometimes.

Why does the university get sued, when they did nothing? I understand that the doctor should be penalized to every extent of the law. What was the University quilty of, other then there deep pockets? Unless they new what this physician was doing and covered it up.

$73,000,000.00 divided by 50% for the lawyers, leaves $36,500,000.00, divided by 6,600 clients is a $5,530.00 payday. Not bad but who made the real cash here for this injustice?
