Judge Randolph D. Jones Day representatives can identify the plaintiffs, for example, to figure out which other lawyers at the firm might have information relevant to their allegations.
The anonymous plaintiffs may yet be unmasked if the case goes to trial. The question of workplace anonymity when an employee alleges illegality like gender bias or sexual harassment is complex.
