An Employment Discrimination Suit Against Ropes & Gray

10/05/11

An employment discrimination suit against Ropes & Gray


John Ray III, former associate of Ropes & Gray, filed an employment discrimination suit against the firm. The firm moved in Boston federal district court, on Monday, to have two of nine counts contained in the case dismissed. Ray sued the firm and its 13 partners in early August, condemning the defendants of violating the contract; discrimination and retaliation in violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; and unfair competition. Ropes, for partial dismissal, asked the court to pardon an unfair competition count against the firm, along with a defamation count against Joy Curtis, former human resources manager. The lawsuit came two years after Ray filed the complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In the complaint he claimed that he had been denied the chance to advance his career because of racial bias. Ray is representing himself in the suit.
