As reported today by The Boston Globe, a former Bingham McCutchen associate yesterday filed a complaint with the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, the state’s chief civil rights agency, alleging that Bingham ignored her allegation that she had been drugged at a firm holiday party.

According to a copy of the complaint, obtained by The Am Law Daily, former litigation associate Michelle Moor says she attended a holiday lunch at Lucia restaurant in Boston’s North End on Dec. 14, 2007. After the lunch, the party moved to a bar upstairs, where Moor claims to remember little beyond drinking two glasses of wine before becoming “extremely disoriented” and heading to an emergency room. Blood tests taken revealed traces of Tegretol, an anticonvulsant known to cause memory loss when ingested with alcohol.
