    This is sloppy journalism. So a lawyer wit ha huge stake in finding perceived injustice at law firms -- amazingly -- thinks the law firms are unjust. That is journalism? A less lazy, less sloppy, less reckless writeup would await the outcome of this guy/‘s cases to see if these allegations are true, would study firm compensation practices and find that men too are subject to all sorts of not-readily-explicable compensation decisions, and that each individual woman is a person, not a gender representative, and that there may well be specific facts explaining what they perceive as bias. Sandford and Wigdor have a huge vested interest in their paranoid -- an d potentially profitable -- view of the world. That doesn‘t turn their fantasies into facts. PS -- I have zero financial or other interest in this issue but am very familiar with large firm compensation decisions.
