From Harvey Weinstein to Sharp Grossmont Hospital: New Suit Over Covert Videos

Three weeks after being accused of covertly taping undressed women without their consent, Sharp Grossmont Hospital faces a second major lawsuit

This time, it’s a potential class action by attorneys who also represented a group of women against Harvey Weinstein. The same firm recently won a pending settlement on behalf of female students and alumnae of USC sexually harassed and abused by Dr. George Tyndall.

Steve Berman, managing partner of Hagens Berman, said in a statement: “These patients suffered a severe breach of their basic rights to privacy and respect at a time when they were at their most vulnerable – seeking medical attention and likely unconscious during a serious surgical procedure. The hospital’s use of cameras is a gross invasion of privacy and shameful behavior.”
