Fiedler investigation into UW-Madison’s Chadima costs school $43,700 in lawyer fees

MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A law firm has charged the University of Wisconsin-Madison about $43,700 to investigate an athletic official who resigned amid a sexual-assault investigation.

Patrick Fiedler

The investigation was conducted by Patrick Fiedler, a former Dane County Circuit judge and current attorney with Axley Brynelson. He was hired to conduct the inquiries into John Chadima.

Fiedler’s work from Jan. 9 to March 26 involved meetings and interviews with UW officials, witnesses and reporters. That’s according to invoices provided to the Wisconsin State Journal.

Fiedler submitted two reports in which he documented allegations from student employees accusing Chadima of making inappropriate sexual advances and improper touching.

The invoices say the first investigation cost $16,900 and the second cost $26,800.

Chadima resigned after he was suspended in January.

    It sounds expensive, but the world would be a better place had Penn State conducted such an investigation of Jerry Sandusky.
