Lawsuit Against Johns Hopkins Gynecologist
Over 8000 women were reportedly photographed by gynecologist Nikita Levy at Johns Hopkins medical institution. These photographs were not for a medical purpose, nor were they required for any type of examination.
Instead, Levy had a secret pen-sized camera he used to photograph the women inappropriately. Although his motivation is unknown, over 8000 women have brought a lawsuit against him and Johns Hopkins has agreed to pay a $190 million settlement to the women for the violations they endured.
Hospital employees and lawyers representing the institution insist that Levy was a “rogue” employee, and that the institution should not be judged for his behaviors. However, shouldn’t the hospital have been monitoring his activity and supervising him in some fashion?
