Goldman Sachs Group Inc. faces a June 5 trial in a long-simmering gender-bias class action alleging the bank discriminated against thousands of women in pay and promotion.

US District Judge Analisa Torres in Manhattan set the 2023 date in an order Monday. If the trial goes ahead as scheduled, it would be 13 years after the closely watched suit was filed and 18 years after the lead plaintiff first complained about discrimination at the bank to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
