Apparently she's feeling abused.
Alisha Smith -- that's Mistress Spark if you're nasty -- has resigned from her position as an assistant prosecutor within the New York State Attorney General's Office after her boss suspended her without pay last month pending an internal investigation into whether she was moonlighting as a dominatrix as reported by Andrea Peyser for the New York Post: "'All of [the AG's] actions towards me have been extremely disturbing because I have never accepted any money or payment from any outside source for anything while I have been employed by the New York Attorney General's Office,' Smith said."
Prior to joining the AG's office Smith was an attorney with the class action firm Milberg Weiss as reported by John O'Brien for Legal Newsline.
Another former Milberg Weiss attorney, Paul D. Young, was among those sued by New York City in November 2006 to shut down "gay S&M sex club" El Mirage which operated for seven years out of the basement of a property he owned as then reported by Roger Parloff for Fortune.
In 2006 Milberg Weiss was indicted for its alleged role in a decades-long conspiracy pursuant to which serial plaintiffs were paid kickbacks from court-approved attorneys' fees in securities fraud cases, and several former partners including Mel Weiss and Bill Lerach were sent to prison. The firm itself avoided prosecution after paying a $75 million fine.
