"Out of ten lawyers, all but one are white; out of seven partners, all but one are males; and all the associates are young and attractive white females."

Ken Lammers, a lawyer and blogger responsible for Crim Law Blog, received Brodie's email and decided to research the allegations.

After checking out Kerr & Wagstaffe's website, Lammers built a defence based on his conclusions that actually, the female lawyers at the firm "weren't really all that hot".

Folklaw believes it's case dismissed.
