Former Columbia University Gynecologist Robert Hadden Found Guilty of Sexual Abuse

HeadlineJan 26, 2023

In New York, former Columbia University OB-GYN Robert Hadden has been convicted of federal sexual abuse charges, including sex trafficking. Hadden sexually assaulted dozens of women patients over two decades, including Evelyn Yang, the wife of former presidential candidate Andrew Yang. Among the convictions, Hadden was found guilty of luring patients across state lines for examinations during which he assaulted them. U.S. Attorney Damian Williams called Hadden a “predator in a white coat.” Columbia University Irving Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital had previously settled with over 200 survivors for $236 million.
