Sexual Harassment

A former associate at Ivie McNeill Wyatt Purcell & Diggs in Los Angeles is suing the firm for its handling of sexual harassment allegations against a name partner.

In a suit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Thursday, Chaena Dade alleges that partner Rodney Diggs exposed himself to her and repeatedly propositioned her for oral sex in May 2019.

When Dade reported the “creepy” and “extremely inappropriate” behavior, she asserts that office management told her she might have to find another job if she couldn’t work with Diggs, since he was the “future of this firm.” Due to the firm’s response, Dade felt forced to resign, according to her attorneys.
