ALEXANDRIA, VA The Center for Individual Freedom today
released a "study" that raises questions regarding potential
gender bias at law firms suing a bevy of major corporations
for gender bias.
research was exhaustive," said Renee Giachino, the Centers
General Counsel. "We examined published lists of partners and
associates at each of the subject law firms, meticulously separated
them by gender based on given names and calculated the ratios using
a proprietary program we got with our free cereal box calculator.
We then transferred all data to bar charts featuring really pretty
colors. The project took up most of a lunch hour, and we paid for
it by passing on our daily $2.95 mocha skim latte.
results are shocking, not to mention shameful," continued Giachino.
"Since our research protocol seems to duplicate precisely the
model used by those very same law firms in their class action lawsuits
against a number of employers, we are confident in the accuracy
of our findings."
"study" found that 73% (75 of 103) of the Partners of
five of the plaintiffs law firms involved in class action
sex discrimination law suits against major employers were male.
Further, the study found that among the same law firms, 63% (60
of 96) of Associates were male.

(and their contingency fee agreements, of course) and well
be ready to take these victims to court," Giachino concluded.

Action Discrimination Lawsuits," and including bar charts (which
will look really good on television) is attached or can be read
In an addendum to her remarks, Giachino said, "Obviously, the
Center is attempting to use humor to make a serious point: employment
numbers, absent underlying individual facts, should not be used
to clog courts with highly suspect class action sex discrimination
