Sexual Harassment

Morning Docket: 02.06.19

* Only four Supreme Court justices attended President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address last night. Chief Justice John Roberts was accompanied in the front row by Justices Elena Kagan, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh — who still likes beer, but was unable to participate in any #SOTU drinking games.

* Biglaw partnership classes are getting smaller and smaller, which is making it that much harder for women and minorities to advance at their firms. In fact, it’s becoming a scenario where “at the end of the day, when they look around and look at who’s now reached the level of seniority to be considered, they’re left with a lot of white men.” [American Lawyer]

* “I wouldn’t be surprised if the next industry to see a #MeToo movement would be in the legal industry.” It’s already happening, but it seems that the mainstream media is just now discovering that the legal profession is a prestigious breeding ground for sexual harassment. [CBS News]
