WHAT’S IN THE BOX? - Anyone hoping the lawsuit by former Jones Day partner Wendy Moore would offer a peek into the firm’s black box pay system will remain in the dark, at least for now, as Moore has dismissed all claims according to the firm. Moore sued Jones Day in June 2018, claiming that it operates as a “fraternity” and that it violated California’s equal pay law and Labor Code through “systematic gender discrimination in compensation.” A spokesman for Jones Day told Ross Todd on Monday that Moore “has now dismissed all of her claims against Jones Day in exchange for return of the capital that she previously contributed to the Firm.”
