A former Polsinelli corporate lawyer has alleged that she was sexually harassed by two senior firm shareholders and that when she reported the misconduct, Polsinelli “retaliated” by terminating her employment.

The plaintiff, Julia Rix, claims that she was “repeatedly hounded” by the two shareholders who “insisted on late-night rendezvous, communicated their sexual interest in her, and forced unwanted physical intimacy” over her two years of work at the firm. She filed suit last Friday in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, seeking $20 million.
