Judge Haddad Settles High-Profile Lawsuit - ADR Systems

ADR Systems


ADR Systems congratulates Hon. William J. Haddad, (Ret.) for recently settling a difficult, high-profile case that was spotlighted in the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin.

The case involved a plaintiff who was sexually abused by a man she met through a popular online dating service.  The victim claimed that the dating service was negligent in their failure to remove the defendant’s profile after receiving at least one previous complaint that he had sexually assaulted another user.

Despite a looming trial date and previous attempts at settlement, parties selected Judge Haddad to mediate the case.  Although the mediation did not result in settlement during the session, Judge Haddad continued to work with parties until they finally reached an agreement.  Daniel S. Kirschner, a partner at Corboy & Demetrio P.C. who represented the plaintiff, stated that, “Judge Haddad was phenomenal in bringing the parties together for a settlement which does not add the additional insult of gagging the victim.”

ADR Systems, It’s Settled.™

Judge Harmening is an excellent mediator. Even in situations where settlement is not achieved the day of the mediation, Judge Harmening will continue talks with the parties when he can sense that a settlement is still possible, and gets it done. We have successfully settled several cases with Judge Harmening to the satisfaction of all parties. I am looking forward to working with him on many more in the future.
