Former orthopedic surgeon takes on Jefferson in federal court over sexual assault allegations

Article here. Excerpt:

'In a federal civil trial this week, a former Rothman Orthopaedic Institute surgeon is claiming that Thomas Jefferson University engaged in male-gender discrimination when it investigated a female medical resident’s allegations that he raped her after a booze-fueled pool party at his Main Line home.

John Abraham, an orthopedic oncology surgeon and a former Jefferson professor, says Jefferson failed to investigate his allegations that he was also a victim. He claims that Jefferson’s leadership ignored his assertion that then-medical resident Jessica Phillips got him drunk at his June 2018 party and forced herself on him. Instead, Jefferson leaders told him that they believed he would be found responsible, says Abraham, who is seeking at least $5 million in damages from Jefferson for financial losses and professional harm suffered.'
