Aliza Shatzman was an aspiring assistant U.S. attorney and excited to start a clerkship in the D.C. Superior Court in August 2019. But it wasn’t long after she started that she began facing harassment and discrimination from the (now former) judge she clerked for, Shatzman said.

Shatzman has spoken publicly several times about her experience, including with the media and in written testimony to a U.S. House Judiciary Committee subcommittee in March.
