This week, The Law Firm of Tamara N. Holder filed suit against NorthShore University HealthSystem and gynecologist Dr. Fabio Ortega. Here is the article in the Chicago Tribune.
Our complaint alleges the OBGYN groomed our client, and used his position of trust to sexually assault her during an exam. She believed the exam was medically necessary when, in fact, it was only to satisfy his sexual desires. Our client did not know she was sexually assaulted until she reported to the police that she was upset about his questioning about her sex life with her husband, not the exam. It was only after she reported the entire incident that she learned that his exam was not standard and medically necessary.
