LOS ANGELES, April 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company which operates lawsuitssettlementfunding.com, reported today that a fifth patient has now filed suit against a former Temecula doctor who is currently in jail and facing charges of sexual assault.
Other women have filed suit as well, alleging that they discovered signs of being assaulted after their surgeries, such as discharge and/or bruising.
Former Temecula medical doctor and surgeon, John Francis McGuire, is "accused of 26 felony counts including sexual battery and rape involving at least eight patients," according to NBC Los Angeles. He was arrested for the assaults last August and remains in custody. He had resigned from the Temecula Valley medical staff in June, and in September, his licenses to practice medicine and surgery were suspended by California's medical board.
"The civil cases filed against McGuire and the other defendants, including Temecula Valley Hospital include claims of sexual harassment, negligence, gender violence, negligent hiring, supervision, retention, as well as medical malpractice," according to the article.
