UCLA’s OB/GYN Scandal

UCLA gynecologist Dr. James Heaps was once a respected and highly paid physician. On June 10, 2019, Heaps was arrested for multiple felony sex offenses for abuse during exams. More than one hundred brave women have since come forward to declare they too were survivors of Dr. Heaps.

UCLA now says they are “deeply sorry that a former member of our staff violated our policies and standards, our trust, and the trust of his patients.” 

However, as contended in our lawsuits, UCLA chose to ignore repeated reports from women who were abused over decades. UCLA must be held accountable for its choice to put women in harm’s way instead of stopping the abuse.


On January 14, 2021, the court approved a $73 Million federal class action settlement by University of California and notices are now being mailed to former patients of Dr. Heaps. Because we believe that individual, custom-tailored lawsuits in state court will achieve a better result for our clients, McGrath Kavinoky will protect all of its clients by opting out of the class action.

NOTE: If you were a patient of Dr. Heaps, it is vital you get legal advice about the class action, since you risk giving up your right to sue Dr. Heaps or UCLA for any claims.  If you would like a free, no-obligation consultation to discuss the pros and cons of the federal class action, we invite your call, day or night.
