Goldman Sachs Gender Discrimination Case Moves Forward

New District Court Ruling Sets Goldman Sachs Gender Discrimination Lawsuit to Move Forward

On April 12, 2017, District Court Judge Analisa Torres granted plaintiffs’ motion to amend their complaint and add new representative plaintiffs, denied Goldman Sachs’ motions to dismiss the new plaintiffs’ claims, and ordered the parties to submit proposals by April 26, 2017, on a process for addressing Magistrate Judge Francis’ March 2015 Report and Recommendation on class certification.

Lieff Cabraser partner Kelly M. Dermody, who represents the plaintiffs in the case, commented on Judge Torres’ Opinion and Order: “We are pleased that the Court corrected an error in the earlier standing order and brought this case into the mainstream of District court precedent. We look forward to continuing the fight for gender equity at Goldman.”

About the Goldman Sachs Gender Discrimination Lawsuit

Lieff Cabraser serves as Co-Lead Counsel with Outten & Golden for plaintiffs in a gender discrimination class action lawsuit against Goldman Sachs. The complaint alleges that Goldman Sachs has engaged in systemic and pervasive discrimination against its female professional employees in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the New York City Human Rights Law.

The complaint charges that, among other things, Goldman Sachs pays its female professionals less than similarly situated males, disproportionately promotes men over equally or more qualified women, and offers better business opportunities and professional support to its male professionals.
