Goldman gets initial group relief

Gavel

Women suing Goldman Sachs for alleged discrimination in pay and promotions shouldn’t be allowed to bring their case against the bank as a group, a judge recommended.

Bloomberg News reports that U.S. Magistrate Judge James Francis in Manhattan said Tuesday that the claims in the suit, filed in 2010 by two women seeking to represent female associates and vice presidents in three Goldman Sachs divisions, are too different from one another to be considered in a single class action.

The magistrate judge called the decision a 'close' call.

Francis’s recommendation will go to U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres, who will make the final decision. Goldman Sachs denies discriminating against women.
