    The French Laundry and famed chef Thomas Keller are named in a lawsuit alleging discrimination against a server because she was pregnant, according to the Napa Valley Register.

    The lawsuit was filed last month in Napa County Superior Court by Vanessa Scott-Allen, who recently moved to the Napa Valley after working as a server at Per Se, Keller's acclaimed New York City restaurant, according to the Register.

    The newspaper reports Scott-Allen moved to the Bay Area to work at The French Laundry, but the job fell through.

    A spokesperson for The Thomas Keller Restaurant Group told the Register the company has a policy of not commenting on pending or ongoing business litigation.
