One of the partners involved in a gender bias lawsuit against Ogletree Deakins Nash Smoak & Stewart has opened a new front in the dispute, filing a lawsuit on Wednesday under California’s Private Attorneys General Act.

Lawyers for Tracy Warren, a former equity shareholder at Ogletree, lodged the suit in San Diego federal court on behalf of her and other women lawyers at the law firm. Previously, Warren opted into a proposed class action filed in San Francisco early in 2018 by lead plaintiff Dawn Knepper, another former Ogletree shareholder.
