Perhaps. An attorney would need to review the policy and ask a lot of questions. There may be other reasons one is not considered. An attorney would also have to understand the qualifications of those who applied, and see if any other reason was a factor. If the applicants are truly equal, and the policy is a contract, then yes there may be a claim.
