Goldman Sachs told to be careful what you wish for'

Goldman Sachs Blink

Goldman Sachs is good at getting what it wants — but it may backfire this time.

The New York Post reports that a federal magistrate judge warned a Goldman lawyer Wednesday to 'be careful what you wish for' during a hearing on an explosive sexual discrimination lawsuit, since trying to prevent a class action could lead to more litigation.

The hearing was the latest twist in a five-year-old suit that alleges a 'boys club' atmosphere rife with client meetings at strip clubs, golf outings that excluded women execs, and female associates and vice presidents getting paid less than their male colleagues.

Lawyers for the plaintiffs are seeking to add two women to the lawsuit — Allison Gamba, a former VP in the securities division, and Mary De Luis, who’s currently in investment management — in order to satisfy a rule for class-action certification that one of the plaintiffs is currently an employee.
