Rich, powerful and horny guy does drugs with prostitute and hangers one day, and butters up LA's moneyed elite the next. He's socially versatile!
Sounds like he was fairly successful in implementing the goals USC set out for him as dean.
Interesting, but since he's no longer dean, not sure I see that much news value in it beyond the salaciousness.
...still having an ongoing relationship with the school (seeing patients at clinics associated with the school)?
Also, I think it raises the question of what USC knew and when relative to his ultimate departure as dean. Did they look the other way not wanting to get rid of their rainmaker?
there arent any allegations of malpractice tho, just debauchery.
That said, you'd like for your MD to be of clear mind.
will also get interesting. Puliafito's next deposition will be a donnybrook. If USC is smart, it files for a protective order on those topics. But if I'm the judge, I let them have at it. Whether drug use is relevant to credibility can be hashed out later. Regardless, I'd love to be a fly on the wall the next time the UC system's lawyers get him under oath.
I know that it's easy to laugh up our sleeves when it comes to USC, but in my mind there is just something about the culture that makes me question the place and the people. I've just seen too many grads of that place doing morally and ethically questionable things. One shouldn't paint with such a broad brush, and I'm sure there are fine upstanding people associated with that place, but the second I hear "USC" in someone's background, I'm on guard.
could be done "recreationally" I thought it was one of those drugs that once you did it, it basically ruined your life and teeth.
Sounds like it was a lot more than "recreationally".
Partying with teenagers, eh. And he didn't see a problem with that? Sounds like the drugs affected a lot more than his teeth. Flippin' bizarre.
what drugs the girl had taken. He should lose his license just for that.
