I'm with Adamakis. It sounds like Ms. Young is better suited for work as a shameless personal injury lawyer. Perhaps she should seek an associates position with the increasngly infamous-by-design Jimmy A. Bell -- he who sues nail salons because they charge big-footed dandies marginally more for a pedicure than they charge smaller-footed women.

Adamakis

"Young sued the firm, claiming...[she was]denied...promotion...then fired – because of her race."

"Young…was among 170 staff attorneys hired by the firm between 2005 and 2008 to do electronic document review work. As Walton noted in his opinion, no staff attorney hired as part of that program was ever hired at the firm as an associate, counsel or partner."

"Furthermore, Young couldn’t prove that Covington’s policy of not promoting staff attorneys was discriminatory because no staff attorney, regardless of race, was ever promoted."

Nice effort.
Next time try ambulance chasing, Ms. Young
