Newly suspicious of the pen hanging on a lanyard Johns Hopkins gynecologist Dr. Nikita A. Levy wore around his neck, a clinical technician who had worked with him for two years took it one day early last year. What she saw when she got home and plugged the device into her computer set off an investigation that shook thousands of women across the region and led the world-renowned hospital to pay $190 million to settle a class-action lawsuit. After she notified Hopkins officials, who viewed the files and confronted Levy, they did not contact city police for a few days.

Maryland men's soccer coach Sasho Cirovski has been suspended one game by the Big Ten for actions after the team's loss to Northwestern on Sunday that were in violation of the conference's sportsmanship policy. As part of the penalty, the school has also been fined $10,000. Cirovski will incur the total cost of the fine, according to a team spokeswoman. Cirovski will serve the suspension Wednesday night against Virginia Commonwealth. According to a story in The Diamondback , Maryland's student paper, Cirovski "tried pushing his way toward the officials, his arms flailing and his voice booming" after the 3-2 overtime loss at Northwestern.

Sexual abuse by a doctor is medical malpractice. The abuse took place while Dr. Nikita Levy was an employee of Johns Hopkins, working at a Johns Hopkins facility, where he was not adequately supervised ( "Why is Hopkins liable in the Levy case?" Sept. 30). For example, he performed thousands of pelvic exams with no chaperon present - a violation of standard medical practice. Did his staff not notice? The women's claims were not handled as individual malpractice lawsuits but as a class action, which saved the hospital years of costly litigation and embarrassment.

A female colleague of Johns Hopkins gynecologist Dr. Nikita Levy became suspicious about a pen the doctor wore around his neck and alerted officials at the medical institution, touching off an investigation into whether he secretly recorded patients. When confronted with the woman's concerns, the doctor handed over several recording devices, including a similar pen camera, to investigators, according to a letter to victim advocates from the institution's top medical official that provided new details about how the allegations came to light.

Can anybody explain why Johns Hopkins is liable for any of the reprehensible actions of Dr. Nikita Levy ( "Attorney says Hopkins was informed of improper exams before investigation," Sept. 26)? Why is Johns Hopkins Medicine agreeing to pay anything to the victims of Dr. Levy's serious transgressions? Was Johns Hopkins in any way responsible for the harm that was caused to Dr. Levy's victims? In all of the reporting on this case I have never heard one thing that would indicate Dr. Levy's actions were allowed or caused or in any way made possible by Johns Hopkins.

Baltimore police said Friday that patient pictures taken by Johns Hopkins gynecologist Dr. Nikita Levy could contain child pornography, and they've turned the evidence over to the FBI for analysis. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi declined to elaborate but said the files reviewed so far contained pictures of patients photographed during medical examinations and could include images of juveniles - which he characterized as a legitimate possibility given the age of some of Levy's patients.

A lead attorney in a multimillion-dollar settlement against Johns Hopkins Medicine said Friday that some clients complained to medical staff about improper exams before the internal investigation that uncovered illegal filming of female patients by gynecologist Nikita Levy. "All I know, and I'm taking the word of certain people who were patients, was at some point in time or some points in time, patients made complaints to hospital personnel," said Baltimore attorney Jonathan Schochor.

More than two dozen of Dr. Nikita Levy's former patients have filed an objection to a $190 million class-action settlement over the Johns Hopkins gynecologist's malpractice. The plaintiffs cited an "excessive legal fee" requested by the lawyers who negotiated the settlement and a lack of clarity regarding the amount each patient would receive, according to the objection. The settlement - one of the largest ever of its kind - was announced in July, five months after investigators found more than 1,300 videos and images, surreptitiously recorded during pelvic exams, in Levy's home and office.

The $190 million settlement for former patients of Dr. Nikita Levy might be eye-popping, but it won't overwhelm the wealthy Johns Hopkins Health System. Hopkins officials said the payout, which received preliminary court approval Monday, would be covered by insurance and wouldn't affect patient care. Officials declined to provide more information on insurance policies and finances. Industry experts said that while Hopkins is likely to take a financial hit - through covering payments with cash reserves if self-insured and through higher insurance premiums - the institution has the means to handle it. Hopkins settled with former patients of Levy, who authorities say secretly recorded patients during gynecologic exams.

Authorities have concluded the investigation into the Johns Hopkins gynecologist suspected of recording patients during exams and determined that no one will face criminal charges, according to court records. Dr. Nikita Levy committed suicide in February 2013, amid an investigation into cameras and hard drives that police have said they believe he was using to record patients. Though his death pre-empted any prosecution of Levy, police launched an investigation to learn whether there were co-conspirators.
