Lawyers pursuing a $200 million gender discrimination lawsuit against Jones Day have fired back at the firm’s request for sanctions, arguing in a Tuesday brief that it relied on “cherry-picked handful of facts and misleading caricatures” of their claims.

In a 44-page filing in Washington, D.C., federal court, attorneys for Sanford Heisler Sharp said their clients, six former female associates of the Am Law 50 firm, have “at least six independent bases for believing that women at Jones Day are paid less than men.”
