The UCLA psychiatry department sex scandal

Details are emerging from this sordid tale where a psychiatry resident was seducing the attendings:

Allegations are unfolding of sex among residents and doctors in the psychiatry department at UCLA’s medical school that are part of an unusual sexual harassment lawsuit filed by a male resident against UCLA and a woman who was one of his supervising physicians.

Jurors will be asked to decide whether the Columbia University-educated doctor and his supervisor had sex (he says they did, she says they didn’t); Did the resident lost a coveted post because of it? And did university officials responded properly?

It will be explosive as research psychiatrists are forced to discuss their sex lives under oath, so explosive – that one of the parties has already attempted to try and convince the judge to close the proceedings and seal the records.
