An attorney who quit her job after returning from maternity leave is suing her former law firm for allegedly cutting her salary while she was pregnant and for creating a "hostile environment." Jacquelyn Todaro, a former associate at Siegel Fenchel & Peddy in Garden City, N.Y., claims she was discriminated against by the firm's principals because she is a woman who became pregnant. Maria H. Moscarelli, a former legal assistant at the firm, is suing on the same grounds.
