From the Willis Tower page on Wikipedia:

Exact same case scenario here as on 1WTC.

Does anybody here think this law suit has anything to do with the radome enclosure ,and maybe ADF group is asking for the full fabrication cost for the antenna as a whole, first news articles where stating that is was do to another project, but now news articles are stating that the money the PA owed is related to the World Trade Center project,anyway it's just a theory.

That would make them even more expensive and more difficult to get tenants.

The question is, was ADF supposed to fabricate the radome too? The radome is quite different than the antenna it was supposed to cover, so I can imagine somebody else would be manufacturing it. I only hope that that ugly joint cover radome is as dead as possible

It's quite possible that the radome is fabricated by an other manufacturer, maybe otie knows the answer.
