Goldman Women Say ‘Overwhelming’ Bias Proof Merits Quick Ruling

  • Female vice presidents and associates sued the bank in 2010
  • They asked the judge to decide a major issue ahead of trial

A group of women suing Goldman Sachs Group Inc. told a federal judge that proof of gender bias in the bank’s pay and promotion decisions was so ‘overwhelming’ she should rule in their favor on a major issue ahead of trial.

In court filing late on Monday, the plaintiffs asked U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres to grant them summary judgment on their claim that Goldman’s practices had a “disparate impact” on women, saying both their own statistical analysis and data provided by Goldman offered clear evidence of systemic discrimination.
