BALTIMORE - There's a pitch to get patients of Dr. Nikita Levy to sign up for a class action lawsuit. He is the former Hopkins gynecologist accused of videotaping his patients.
An attorney representing the victims says at least 12,600 people could be affected, and each of them qualify for the lawsuit against Hopkins.
Jon Schochor says letters were mailed out to former patients of Dr. Levy, along with registration forms for the lawsuit. Schochor is working on an appropriate settlement with attorneys from Hopkins, where Dr. Levy worked for 25 years.
Some patients treated by Dr. Levy at the Hopkins clinic claim he inappropriately touched them and did exams without a chaperone. But a patient does not have to claim abuse to qualify.
"They are not called upon to try to identify themselves with respect to any of the videotapes or photographs he took. That is not part of this request," said Jon Schochor, Chairman, Class Action Steering Committee.
There's still no answer from Baltimore police on if Levy's patients were shared online.
In the past, Hopkins told us taking part in settlement talks is not an admission of any wrongdoing.
