A former Crowell & Moring administrative staff member has filed a $300,000 lawsuit against the firm, alleging that she was fired after 18 years with the firm because of her age. Mona Saunders, 54, sued in D.C. Superior Court on July 10 under the D.C. Human Rights Act.

According to Saunders’ complaint, she was employed by Crowell from 1990 to 2008 in several jobs with no performance issues. Saunders’ lawyer, Ardra O’Neal of Washington’s O’Neal Firm, adds that in 2003, the firm awarded Saunders the George Bailey Award, named after the character played by Jimmy Stewart in “It’s a Wonderful Life,” for her pro bono work.
