What happened at UCLA?
Dr. Heaps, an OB/GYN who practiced at UCLA Student Health Center, Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and his private office in Westwood, was criminally charged on May 22, 2019 with two counts of sexual battery and one count of sexual exploitation related to two patients whom he sexually abused.
Hundreds of women have now filed civil lawsuits against Dr. Heaps and UCLA, and more lawsuits are being filed all the time.
Why file a civil lawsuit and what about a class action suit?
You may have heard about a proposed class action settlement that was recently negotiated by UCLA. We know, from our experience in similar sexual abuse litigation, that for women who were sexually abused or harassed, a class action settlement is not the best approach. The total dollar figure being paid may seem large, but it must be divided among thousands of women who saw Dr. Heaps, many of whom did not suffer any abuse or harassment at all. The much better approach is to hire your own personal lawyer who can work to get you the compensation that you truly deserve.
