Phillip Kete '83 was quoted in The Washington Post in his role as attorney for Barbara Murchison, a Social Security Administration team leader in Maryland who was discriminated against for reasons of race, sex, and age by the SSA, and was caught in limbo between the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the SSA. Now her case is closed as the final order of the SSA was that Murchison was discriminated against. So now Murchison can get her job back, but she's retired after 11 years of court proceedings.

Her retirement won’t be an issue, according to her attorney, Phillip Kete. "Retirement won’t affect her right to be reinstated,” he said. "If she had her old job . . . she would have happily stayed on another couple of years.” Murchison agrees.
