Heaps pleaded not guilty last week to sexual battery during his treatment of two other patients at a university facility. Heaps didn't comment on the latest lawsuit but has repeatedly denied wrongdoing. His attorney, Tracy Green, called previous allegations meritless.
A UCLA Health spokesperson told the Times on Tuesday that the allegations in the newest lawsuit are "very disturbing." The newspaper says at least 22 other women have alleged Heaps sexually assaulted them while he practiced at UCLA.
