The assault began in the 1980s and he resigned in 2016. In 2021, Columbia agreed to pay $72 million to 79 of the doctor's victims, and the following year, a $165 million settlement with 147 patients was reached. Attorney Anthony DiPietro told the Wall Street Journal that Columbia orchestrated a massive cover-up that went on for years. Columbia has made it abundantly clear that the only thing they care about is their money, and in the case where they can, I would be aiming to hit them as hard as I can,' said DiPietro.

Among Hadden's accusers was Evelyn Yang, the wife of the former presidential candidate and New York City mayoral candidate Andrew Yang. She went public in 2020 with allegations that Hadden abused her when she was his patient in 2012.

Hadden currently awaits trial on separate federal charges of sexually abusing dozens of young and unsuspecting female patients for over two decades.

MAILMAN: 6,000 New York hotel beds for migrants on the taxpayers' dime? You ain't seen nothing yet, August 19, 2022
Growing up in small-town Western Kansas, I couldn't afford to travel to New York until I was 21. When I did make my grand arrival, it was on a Chinatown bus. I paid for it out of my own pocket. Then I asked a cab to take me to my hotel near the Waldorf Astoria. The cab driver, however, dropped me off at the Waldorf, where it was swiftly made known that I, in my Gap dress and department store boots, was certainly not a guest there. That's not the tale for the busload of migrants who are being shipped into the city from Texas and Arizona - after first illegally entering the country -- and being housed, on the taxpayers' dime, at fancy New York City hotels. On Thursday, New York City's Department of Social Services requested an extra 5,000 hotel rooms to accommodate New York's newest guests. That's on top of the 1,000 rooms the city announced they'd be renting last week at places like The Row, a four-star Times Square resort.
