Prominent feminist lawyer Gloria Allred is under investigation by two bar associations for alleged misconduct stemming from a case she handled for a D.C. weatherman who sued CBS for discrimination, LawNewz reported Monday.

The California Bar and Washington, D.C. Bar have open cases against Allred, who is famous for taking controversial celebrity cases and is representing a woman who has accused President Donald Trump of sexually harassing and assaulting her years ago.

"Gloria Allred severely injured me and my family and refuses accountability," Kyle Hunter told LawNewz in a statement. "I am very pleased that The State Bar of California and the Washington D.C. Bar are taking their investigations into Ms. Allred very seriously. I applaud their professionalism and duty to the public's protection."

Hunter said Allred botched his case by not properly notifying him she was working with CBS to produce a drama inspired by her life. He said her firm also failed to properly interview witnesses and provide affidavits in his suit.

"Mr. Hunter has been threatening to sue our law firm for approximately one year in an attempt to get our law firm to pay him money which he is not entitled to," Allred told LawNewz in June. "We represented Mr. Hunter vigorously and with devotion and with the utmost integrity. We advanced his case through all the courts in California, including two attempts to have his case heard in the California Supreme Court.

"He has no valid claim against our law firm or its partners, and we will pay him nothing for his worthless claims. We will vigorously defend ourselves, and we believe that we will prevail."
