Polygamy and Pornography: More Lawyers (Allegedly) Behaving Badly

Below is the complaint filed last week by paralegal (and law school graduate but not yet admitted attorney) against the Law Firm of Ray & Associates and its principal attorney James Ray.

Plaintiff alleges violations of various laws, including the Fair Labor Standards Act and the New York City Human Rights Law.

While plaintiff asserts a host of claims (including that she was not paid overtime and minimum wage and that she was subjected to an unlawful wage deduction), among the more interesting allegations are that plaintiff’s boss (an alleged polygamist) asked plaintiff to be his “third wife” and forced her to listen to his views on the relationship benefits of pornography.
