You may remember Mr. Schroeder from our previous coverage on him:
Bradley “Brad” P. Schroeder FOLLOWUP!!
Schroeders DJ Service / Bradley “Brad” P. Schroeder WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?!?!?!
Who Is Bradley Paul Schroeder – Schroeder’s DJ Service – Brad Schroeder???
An interesting little tidbit has been circling around the internet today and we figured it might just be appropriate for us to address it.
Now normally we don’t speak on “threats of litigation” since if we did that would be our primary topic. It probably doesn’t surprise you that if we don’t get a few litigation threats a week that its out of the normal.
This one is a little different and our General Manager felt there was a need to address it.
The full post reads “Defamation of Character…I am going to cover this ONE last time..There is a tabloid publication running information about my service that is not true…I have spoken to my lawyer and we will be suing this publication and local DJ Dave Issacs ,real name Dave Neisler on the grounds of defamation of character…There is a picture of a FORMER DJ who may or may not have a criminal past that is attached with my name.The DJ is my friend but has not worked for me in 2 years, unlike the allegations made in this FB rag.Several have sent me the article, I have it and my attorney has it and the legal process has begun..Again I would mention I have a 30 year history and have done many events for high ranking officiasl.As always do not believe everything you read on FB much like the National Enquirer….I am on it and judgements will be filed..Thank , Brads”
Lets have a little bit of legal study today for all the Google Attorneys out there. The Defamation of Character statue is very simple in Illinois. A landmark case (Troman v. Wood, 62 Ill.2d 1984, 299 (Ill. 1975) ) set the standards pretty much for in which many attorneys refer to when defending a Defamation Case.
When it comes to our position on Mr. Schroeder’s out there statements lets address it briefly.
Easily summed up a majority of our posting on Mr. Schroeder would be covered under the “Fair Report Privilege” as we only disseminated a news story from official public records. The rest of our story on Mr. Schroeder was merely information taken from public statements “reviews” or likewise “user submitted content”.
What further bothers us in this mindless rant of Mr. Schroeder was “please make people aware this is nothing more than a smear campaign by another DJ…thank you“. Let it be know that the DJ he referenced has no part in our dissemination of the story. We were reached out to by SEVERAL people about Mr. Schroeder and his company’s actions. We did make contact with the DJ in question and had him even write us up an article see (What YOU Need To Know About Hiring A DJ???). By no way was this article a “smear campaign by another DJ“.
What we do find comical in this matter is Mr. Schroeder had no issue smearing the DJ’s name in his rant, but would not address us by name. That was probably a good choice on your end Mr. Schroeder.
As we started working on this FOLLOWUP, another review of Brad’s company was sent to us…
Oh I’m sorry all these bad reviews are just a “smear campaign”. That in theory Mr. Schroeder implies are all false statements.
In Mr. Schroeder’s above-referenced threat/rant he stated “…There is a picture of a FORMER DJ who may or may not have a criminal past that is attached with my name.The DJ is my friend but has not worked for me in 2 years, unlike the allegations made in this FB rag…”. This piece actually caught us off guard. In our coverage of Brad and his company we covered quite a few years (not just recent things).
In the story Schroeders DJ Service / Bradley “Brad” P. Schroeder WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?!?!?! which he is referring to was actually stated the following…”…Larry Franklin pictured above use to be a DJ for Brad according to sources. Make sure to read our story Sangamon County Sheriff Wes Barr Social Media Campaign Manager Accused Again Of Sex Crime! on Mr. Franklin!…”
Yes Brad that is right we said “use to be“, as in a “FORMER” employee of yours. Brad you should maybe consider choosing your “friends” better. Associating with alleged child sex offenders is not a good practice, just our two cents.
Lets recap at this though and cover those facts that Brad here implies are false.
It is FACT that Mr. Schroeder was ARRESTED for FELONY HOME INVASION.
It is FACT that Mr. Schroeder was ARRESTED for failing to comply with a Judge’s Order.
It is FACT that Mr. Schroeder has at least on one occasion almost been arrested AGAIN for failing to comply with a Judge’s Order.
It is FACT that Mr. Schroeder has attempted on more than one occasion to force a Non Disclosure Agreement onto a bride for a refund. (Brad you admitted to that, please don’t forget).
It is FACT that Mr. Schroeder has upwards of 50 Negative Reviews across a few year time span that all state similar issues.
It is FACT that Mr. Schroeder, like mentioned above those reviews are still coming in EVEN TODAY!
It is FACT that Mr. Schroeder was dropped by BBB.
It is FACT that Mr. Schroeder has been apart of several small claims/civil lawsuits were he has been accused of hiding money/assets.
It is FACT that Mr. Schroeder is “friends” and a former boss to an employee who recently has been charged with child sexual abuse charges.
It is FACT that Mr. Schroeder wrote a bad check to Sangamon County.
Mr. Schroeder please stop ripping off these Brides as they are all stating you are doing. Oh and please pay your money you owe on your child, I’d hate to see you with a fresh mugshot over that petty $100 a month again. See you in court Brad!
