Fear of Career Damage Led Woman to Sue Proskauer Anonymously
Bloomberg Law is reporting that Proskauer Rose has become the latest Big Law firm to be hit with a gender discrimination lawsuit by a female partner.
The plaintiff brought the case against her employer under a pseudonym.
“According to the redacted complaint filed Friday, the plaintiff, an unnamed partner in Proskauer’s Washington, D.C. office, was objectified by male partners who made inappropriate comments about her physical appearance, paid less than male partners who were similarly or less productive than she was, and excluded from projects and client development activities once she began complaining,” writes reporter Stephanie Russell-Kraft.
The defendant responded by saying the suit is “groundless” and “meritless.”
