A partner at DLA Piper's Amsterdam office has been publicly shamed after unwittingly displaying a porn collection at a client presentation.

The partner was giving a presentation at the office of Orangefield Trust, a major Dutch company. Unfortunately when he put his USB stick, which contained his presentation, into the laptop that Orangefield had provided, he discovered that it had an "autoplay" function. And the room was treated to an unstoppable slideshow of hardcore interracial porn.

Well, at least the Dutch are liberal.

It seems that the partner's interest in matters race related is not confined to mucky pictures. He was subsequently embroiled in a discrimination scandal after making a comment to a DLA Piper employee that she construed as racist. The employee threatened action, and the firm coughed up handsomely to make the matter go away. Rumours are circulating that it subsequently recovered the cash from the partner's own pocket.

As usual a spokeswoman for DLA Piper wouldn't comment on any of this. The partner is still at the firm.
