A partner at employment law giant Ogletree Deakins is accused in a new lawsuit of sexually harassing a junior attorney and retaliating when the younger man complained. The former staff attorney filed his complaint February 21st in the California Superior Court as “John Doe” because of the explicit nature of the allegations he is lodging against the law firm. He says that other Ogletree attorneys and staff were unresponsive and unhelpful when he reached out for assistance. Doe worked in Ogletree’s Los Angeles office from July 2015 to July 2017.

Defendant Johnnie James, a gay Ogletree partner, engaged Doe, a gay Latino male, in multiple inappropriate conversations about sex and extramarital affairs. Doe says throughout the two years he worked at Ogletree, Mr. James shared explicit photos and videos, hinted he wanted to have sex with Doe, and insinuated that Doe should flirt with certain male Ogletree clients. When he complained to another partner, Doe says Mr. James stopped assigning work to him for nine months. Doe says another partner referred to him as a “unicorn” for being the only gay Latino in the office.
