Partners in study gave legal memo a lower rating when told author wasn't white

Partners in study gave legal memo a lower rating when told author wasn't white.  This is staggering.  The same memo scored .9 points lower on a 5 point scale  when written by a black man.  Crazy.  Absolutely crazy.  It is not a good sign for these firms, and it demonstrates a built in racial bias.  Makes you wonder if a brief written by a woman would be scored differently than a man or a lawyer from an Ivy League school versus a non-Ivy law school.
