Race Discrimination Lawsuit Against Goldman Sachs

In a recent complaint filed in Manhattan federal court, captioned Allen v. Goldman Sachs, SDNY 17-cv-6195 (filed 8/16/17), plaintiff Rebecca Allen – a member of Goldman’s Private Wealth Management Division – alleges (inter alia) that “[a]s a result of [a] pattern and practice of discriminatory conduct, the few Black employees at the Bank are marginalized and subjected to disparate treatment in a variety of ways, including in compensation, promotions and opportunities to develop client relationships and earn commissions.”

She asserts claims under 42 U.S.C. 1981 and the New York State and City Human Rights Laws and seeks various forms of relief, including a declaratory judgment that defendants violated the law, an injunction restraining defendants from engaging in unlawful conduct, economic damages, emotional distress damages, punitive damages, and attorney fees.
