Goldman Sachs Was Sued For Gender Pay Gap In 2010 Still Complaining of Class Counsel’s Communications

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 6 – Goldman Sachs was sued in 2010 for unequal pay to women. Fully a decade later on May 6, 2020 the lawyers were bickering about class counsel’s communications to women at Goldman.

 It was a telephone proceeding before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger and Inner City Press covered it.

  Sullivan & Cromwell, representing Goldman, had argued that “co-lead counsel’s unauthorized communications circumvent the Order, which thrice direct the parties to ‘meet and confer and submit to the Court a proposed form and method of notice’ to Equity Award recipients.”

    Before Judge Lehrburger they sniped – the Judge’s word – at each other, until plaintiffs’ counsel agreed communications could be shown in advance to the Judge, in camera – without Goldman and its counsel seeing or pre-approving them.

   Ten years is a long time. A decision is expected.   The case is Chen-Oster, et al. v. Goldman Sachs & Co., et al, 10-cv-6950 (Torres / Lehrburger).
