Is the way we select our judges the best way to arrive at a judiciary chosen from a wide spectrum of the population?

Consulting giant Booz Allen Hamilton, of McLean, Va., is facing its second multimillion dollar sex discrimination lawsuit this summer.

Margo Fitzpatrick, a former partner at the firm, filed her lawsuit in D.C. Superior Court Friday.

Fitzpatrick accuses the company of denying women a chance to move into leadership positions. After complaining about it, she was fired, she says. She had worked at Booz Allen for 12 years.

Fitzpatrick -- who is a lesbian -- also believes her sexual orientation played a role in her firing.

She is seeking $40 million in damages.

Another former female partner at the firm filed a similar sex discrimination lawsuit against Booz Allen Hamilton last month.

Booz Allen Hamilton said it strongly disagrees with the allegations and will fight the lawsuits.
