We kid…we kid Morgan Stanley—no one thinks they’re the No. 2 BB, or even the No. 3 or 4 for that matter. But they were in fact served papers last week by Lisa LaMacchia, an MS employee who claims that her boss, Richard Dorfman, offered her some unwanted touching and then tried to “sexually assault her with a pencil.”
The suit seeks unspecified money damages from Morgan Stanley and Dorfman, who allegedly once “stole a pair of underwear from [LaMacchia’s] gym bag" and is described as a “hostile and aggressive” boss (and “11, maybe 12 years old,” one intuits). The defendant claims that HR told her “suck it up,” as they presumably had bigger problems on their hands, like the protractor incident on the sixth floor.
