The Moor is back — and we’re not talking Othello. From Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly:
Three months after the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination dismissed her complaint, a former Bingham McCutchen associate has fired back with a gender-discrimination suit against the Boston firm she left in 2008.
In a highly charged complaint filed in Suffolk Superior Court on June 23, Michelle A. Moor, who now works at Kotin, Crabtree & Strong, alleges that she was involuntarily drugged with a “roofie” during a Dec. 14, 2007, firm-sponsored holiday party….
In a written statement, Bingham’s senior communications manager, Claire Papanastasiou, said the firm acted sensitively, responsibly and fairly at all times.
“We are disappointed that [Moor] persists in pursuing baseless claims against the firm, particularly in light of the [MCAD's] April 9 dismissal of her complaint for lack of probable cause,” she wrote.
Will Moor v. Bingham McCutchen LLP provide endless entertainment, a la Charney v. Sullivan & Cromwell? Or will it fizzle out fast, a la Young v. Covington & Burling? Stay tuned.
