Despite recent heated court battles, a $108 million lawsuit filed against two women who came forward last year accusing former George Mason University law professor Joshua Wright of sexual misconduct is set to go to trial in March.

Judge Patrick Blanch of the Circuit Court of Fairfax County, Virginia, on May 31 denied a plea in bar from defendants Elyse Dorsey, a Kirkland & Ellis partner, and Angela Landry, a counsel at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, in which they argued, in part, that their statements were protected under Virginia’s Anti-SLAPP statute, according to a May 3 memo in support of the plea.
