Drinker Biddle & Reath has settled a racial discrimination lawsuit filed by a black legal assistant in its Princeton, New Jersey, office, who claimed she was paid less than colleagues because of her race and was subject to racially insensitive comments.

Syneetra Hill sued Drinker Biddle on July 26 in Mercer County Superior Court, and the case was dismissed pursuant to a confidential settlement on Sept. 27.

But he added that his client is pleased with the outcome.
