How to Get Sued

Quote of the Day - Yes, it's a man's world, but that's all right because they're making a total mess of it. We're chipping away at their control, taking the parts we want. Some women think it's a difficult task, but it's not. - Cher

Blawg, Blawg, Blawg - One to Note

Not to steal any thunder from Bag and Baggage's earlier announcment back in late July, but there's an interesting new blog that's popped up into the news again today: Ms. Morality.

You may remember Michelle Quist Mumford, as this article points out. She's a former third-year associate at Millbank Tweed, which got into a row with Ms. [Mumford] Morality when she announced her pregnancy. Ms. Mumford says she was then "ignored, shunned, rejected."

She quit back in April and now completely gone from Millbank's website, she's nonetheless not done with Millbank.

The author of today's news article in American Lawyer, Vivia Chen, writes, "[Mumford] claims she was treated like a 'leper' the moment she announced her pregnancy at the firm." Chen also covered the story back in June, and has an interesting perspective on why some law firms succeed in converting female associates into partners.

I suspect Ms. Mumford would recommend that article to Millbank's managing partner.
