“Hi Riley, this is Heather from the Law Firm. You were a second-level  LinkedIn connection of one of our former attorneys who recently quit. I was wondering if you also enjoy deposing actuaries to determine whether life insurance premiums have a disparate impact on women who have never been pregnant?”
