Proskauer faces $10m discrimination lawsuit from firm's former CFO
Proskauer Rose is facing a $10m (£6.5m) discrimination suit from the firm's former chief financial officer (CFO), reports The Am Law Daily. In a suit filed on Wednesday (5 October) in New York State court, Elly Rosenthal, 57, claims the firm where she worked for 18 years - 16 of them as CFO - demoted and ultimately fired her because of her gender, her age, and a perceived disability following a medical leave during which she was treated for breast cancer.
