MORE MOTHERS - A seventh woman has joined a proposed $100 million class action alleging that Morrison & Foerster held back the careers of mothers and pregnant women through unequal pay and promotion opportunities. Scott Flaherty reports that an unnamed former associate at the firm identified as Jane Doe 7 added allegations under the New York City Human Rights Law and proposed a subclass of women who worked at Morrison & Foerster in New York to the gender and pregnancy discrimination first brought nearly a year ago. The case is in San Francisco federal court.
