The University of Southern California and its board of directors have retained a top-tier legal team from Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan to combat multiple lawsuits stemming from alleged sexual abuse by a former gynecologist at the campus health center.

Shon Morgan, who chairs Quinn’s national class action practice, will take the lead in defending USC (but not the doctor, George Tyndall) against putative class actions that now include dozens of plaintiffs. Morgan declined comment.
