Settlement in neurologist sexual abuse case

One of the biggest medical abuse cases in Australia, involving more than 50 patients who were sexually abused by a neurologist, has finally been settled.

Dr Andrew Churchyard, who took his own life in 2016 after being committed to stand trial for sexual abuse, assaulted the men in his consultation rooms at several locations around Melbourne.
