A former executive fired after alleging extensive greenwashing at Deutsche Bank AG’s asset-management unit DWS lost her German unfair-dismissal suit.

Desiree Fixler, who sued DWS after she was laid off in March last year, lost the case for reasons that couldn’t be immediately disclosed because the parties weren’t present, Presiding Judge Ilka Heinemeyer said when delivering the ruling at the Frankfurt labor court on Monday.
