Goldman Sachs Group Inc. was sued Wednesday by a former vice president who claims the bank discriminated against him for being gay and then fired him after he complained about it.

William Littleton, who worked on the Specialty Solutions team within Goldman’s Product Strategy Group, claims he was fired after eight years of superior performance reviews and despite holding a position of leadership among gay and lesbian employees at the firm.
