VOLLEY - DLA Piper has submitted its first formal response to claims by partner Vanina Guerrero that she was the subject of repeated sexual assaults by Silicon Valley rainmaker Louis Lehot, highlighting a letter she emailed to herself saying that offering “friendship w/o anything” would allow her to “control” him. Dan Packel reports that the firm’s 122-page response to her charge last month with the EEOC appends nearly 100 pages of emails and photographs, which, the firm argues, “show that Ms. Guerrero was a willing participant in a lengthy emotional flirtation with Mr. Lehot that she orchestrated to advance her career.”
