Johns Hopkins Is Off the Hook (For Now) in Case of OB/GYN Who Filmed Patients

Share the News


Last February, a Johns Hopkins Hospital employee informed administrators that an OB/GYN at the hospital may have been secretly filming and photographing patients with a camera hidden inside his pen. Two weeks later, Levy killed himself–but the FBI and the Baltimore City Police Department continued the investigation for over a year, trying to determine whether there was any evidence that might result in the arrest of other parties.

This week, the BPD and FBI announced that their investigation was over, and that no JHH employees would be charged with any crimes. But that doesn’t mean the hospital is in the clear: A class-action lawsuit that names 10,000 of Levy’s patients was filed against the hospital this week.

Odds are, Johns Hopkins will find a way to resolve the lawsuit through mediation (read: a major settlement), rather than having the case go through the PR nightmare of a court case. Stay tuned to see how it all turns out…
