DLA Piper partner who accused colleague of assault placed on leave

DLA Piper said on Wednesday it has placed a partner, who earlier this month accused a colleague of sexually assaulting her and asked the firm to release her from a mandatory arbitration agreement so she could pursue her claims in court, on paid leave.
