Would there be any question about this case if the practice chair was male and the contract employee was young, blond and female? That aside, I'm sure there was a salary disparity between an employee approaching retirement age and a contract employee with no benefits package. This seems an obvious case of discrimination suitable for a TV movie. I wish Ms. Hindin the best possible outcome.

No one is immune from discharge, however, if the scenario is as plaintiff describes, MBRM (f/k/a MBP) has a good chance of losing. Times are just not as nice as they were in years past. The problem with this scenario is that she was a full-time employee of the firm and her "competition" was a contract worker. There are different ramifications here.
