What Happened At UCLA?

Dr. James Heaps, a former UCLA Health OG-GYN, has been charged with 20 felony sex crimes for inappropriate touching, comments, and other behavior in connection with his medical practice.  Just prior to his arrest, McGrath Kavinoky settled the only individual sexual abuse case against Heaps and UCLA for $2.25 Million Dollars.

They now represent more than 300 women in their individual, personalized claims against Heaps and UCLA Health.

IIs also come to light that an OBGYN from UCLA’s Student Health Center is also alleged to have sexually abused patients. If you are one of the survivors who has not yet come forward, you may be entitled to compensation far beyond what is offered in the class action.
