U.S. judge recommends no Goldman gender-bias class action

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal judge on Tuesday recommended against certifying a class-action lawsuit in which current and former female employees at Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) accused the Wall Street bank of gender-based bias in pay and promotions.

While saying “this is a close case,” U.S. Magistrate Judge James Francis said there were not enough common issues among the proposed class members to justify letting them sue as a group.

The judge’s recommendation now goes to U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres, who will decide whether to accept it.
