Wish you could work in a law firm that’s run like a frat house or the Playboy mansion? Well, you might consider packing up your bags for the metropolis of Pittsburgh.

JoEllen Lyons Dillon, a non-equity partner at Reed Smith, is suing the firm in federal district court in western Pennsylvania for discrimination. The complaint alleges that the firm paid women partners less than men, and denied her equity partnership, though she consistently collected over $1 million per year for the firm.
