Of the many alleged indignities described in Wendy Moore’s complaint in her gender discrimination lawsuit against Jones Day, this one popped up at me like a crazy jack-in-the-box: A sixth year associate—male—took home $810,000—about the same amount that Moore made as an eighth-year partner at the firm.

Holy Toledo! (Or should I say Cleveland?) That’s a hell of a lot of money for an associate with only a half-dozen years under his belt. That would be an amazing sum for a 10th year associate, even a junior partner at most firms. (At Cravath, the top associate base salary is $340,000.)
