An American firm is facing a sexual harassment suit after allegations surfaced that its founding partner took employees to a strip club after a "holiday party" in 2009.

The Los Angeles Times reports that a former investigator with Glancy Binkow & Goldberg was fired in December 2009. She subsequently filed a claim for wrongful termination and sexual harassment, with the lawsuit alleging that the firm's founding partner shouted a number of employees entry into a bikini bar, and purchased a lap dance for one colleague.

The lawsuit also alleges that the work environment was "hostile" to females, with pictures of naked women displayed in the office and partners having an "obsession with discussing sex".

It is reported that the firm has labeled the allegations as false, and will defend the charges.

American lawyers have been in trouble with the law before for cavorting with strippers.

In 2009, a 66-year-old deputy assistant attorney in South Carolina was dismissed following an incident where police found him in a cemetery with an 18 year-old stripper.

Folkaw was very impressed to learn that the attorney was not letting pleasure get in the way of duty, as he was found with the stripper on his lunch break.
